Educational Talent Search

Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a federally funded program that serves eligible young people in grades 6th-12th. This early intervention program targets "educationally talented" students who desire and have potential to go to college or post secondary education. ETS helps these students better understand their educational opportunities and options. Membership in the program is based on eligibility, and participation in all activities is free. Eligibility is determined by income and or first generation (parents do not have a bachelors degree) status.

Some of the services we offer:

  • Study skills
  • Tutoring
  • Career exploration activities
  • Career fieldtrips
  • College campus visits
  • Assistance with: college searches, scholarship searches, ACT/SAT preparation, financial aid and admission to the institution of choice.

For more information visit our website at Educational Talent Search. If you are interested in our program or have any questions, please call out CD'A office at 292-2539 or e-mail Elizabeth Jewel at eajewel@uidaho.edu.
