The TRIO Student Support Services Program grant will help USD provide a variety of resources and services to 140 students each year over the the next five years, including: free tutoring, personal and career counseling, mentoring, cultural enrichment programs, financial and economic literacy, and financial aid and scholarship assistance.
"The goal of the program is to increase recruitment, retention and graduation of qualified students,” said Kimberly Grieve, vice president of student services and dean of students.
Grieve and Michael Suing, who works in student services, prepared the grant proposal that received a rare perfect score.
