TRiO federally funded grants at Columbia College:

Student Support Service programs are designed to assist low-income, first-generation, and/or students with disabilities attending colleges/universities around the country to complete their bachelor's degree in a timely manner while achiving the highest GPAs, maximizing all financial aid and scholarship opportunities, and minimizing their student debt. SSS grants are issued for five years and are performance based funding from the Department of Education, via the Higher Education Act of 1965. Columbia College was first awarded this SSS grant in 2010. The college's SSS grant was subsequently renewed in 2015.
