The Talent Search Program (TS) is a part of the Center for PreCollege Programs (CPP) at Rutgers University-Newark and is funded through the United States Department of Education. The goal of Talent Search is to identify and assist individuals from underserved backgrounds within target areas, who have the potential to succeed in higher education.
