Hopkinsville Community College has received funding from the Federal TRIO Programs for its Student Support Services program.

The program will be funded from 2021-25 at close to $340,000 per year.

Dr. Alissa Young, HCC President/CEO, said they are fortunate to obtain funding from the rigorous and competitive national process with the U.S. Department of Education.

TRIO is a federal outreach program providing student services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.

All SSS projects provide academic tutoring, advice in post-secondary course selection, financial aid information, and assistance in scholarship applications. HCC’s program served 212 students annually since 1990.

Students must be first-generation college students, low income, or have disabilities.
