Educational Talent Search

The University of Pennsylvania’s Educational Talent Search Program is a federally funded program designed to help first-generation students from modest income families successfully complete high school and enroll in postsecondary school. Educational Talent Search provides approximately 600 students in grades 6-12 from three middle schools and six high schools throughout Philadelphia with support services that promote the academic and personal development necessary for entry into and success in postsecondary school.  Our services are completely free to eligible students.

Students may join Educational Talent Search at any point in the academic journey. Click here for our online application.
