A Study of the Effect of the Talent Search Program on Secondary and Postsecondary Outcomes in Florida, Indiana and Texas: Final Report From Phase II of the National Evaluation

This retrospective study examined the effects of Talent Search on a cohort of students who participated in the program in one of three states (Florida, Indiana, and Texas) and were ninth graders from 1995-1996. Overall, the study found that Talent Search participants were more likely than a comparable control group to enroll in a public college or university, especially two-year institutions, in their state by the 1999-2000 school year. They were also more likely to apply for federal financial aid.
