The Endeleo Institute has been awarded a TRIO Education Opportunities Centers (EOC) grant by the US Department of Education. Until now, our focus was on K-12 grades. But we are now equipped to assist qualified children and adults.

The adult TRIO (EOC) program provides educational counseling and guidance on college and trade school enrollment to qualified Chicago area adults 19 years or older, who desire to enter or continue a program of post-secondary education at NO COST.

 

PARTICIPANT EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE SERVICES INCLUDE:

Financial aid application completion assistance, renewal, and/or review

College application enrollment assistance if you have never been to college

Re-enrollment counseling assistance for adults who are returning to college

Student loan counseling assistance (includes default advising)

Trade School enrollment counseling assistance

GED referral assistance

 

YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO ENROLL IF YOU: 

Are a United States citizen, National, or Permanent Resident

Are at least 19 years of age; and

Are seeking to enroll in college or currently enrolled in college

*Veterans and returning citizens are encouraged to apply

 

The goal of The Endeleo Institute Adult TRIO EOC program is to increase the number of Chicago area adults who pursue and enroll in post-secondary education programs, to improve workplace options and help to alleviate poverty in our community.
