Educational Talent Search

About the Program

The Educational Talent Search (ETS) program has been helping low-income and potential first-generation students successfully graduate from secondary school and enroll in post-secondary education since 1977.  Targeting thirteen high schools in the Long Beach/Los Angeles area, ETS advisors guide students in their search for higher-education enrollment and career possibilities. College tours, career planning, and scholarship and financial aid resources are among the many things ETS offers for both students and parents of the target schools.

Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a free, federally-funded program housed at California State University, Long Beach since 1977.
