What is The TalentED Project?
College fit matters. Research shows that when a first-generation, lower-income students attends a college that isn’t a good academic fit, he is less likely to graduate from college or attend graduate school and is more likely to earn less money over his lifetime. The TalentED Project helps college access professionals and the students they serve find colleges and universities that are good academic, financial and social fits. Free for all users, TalentED’s college search and institution profiles are curated to provide access professionals and first-generation, lower-income students with the necessary information to identify good-fit campuses.
