What We Do
TD recruits students with college potential, admits them through a rigorous Summer Program, provides them with an assigned academic advisor, and retains students with financial and other assistance.
The Talent Development Program at the University of Rhode Island serves Rhode Island high school graduates who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. A majority of TD students are students of color. Students admitted to TD have taken the required core academic courses in high school. However, the average academic profile for students accepted to the TD program is not the average academic profile for students accepted through the regular admission process.TD requires an intensive summer academic program prior to the start of the fall semester. During the TD Summer Program students take university courses and live on campus. TD students who successfully complete the TD Summer Program continue their enrollment at URI in the fall. TD students receive academic and individual support from TD Advisors and mentors, and most receive the need-based Hardge/Forleo Grant. To be considered for the TD Program, students apply for admission to URI indicating their interest in TD, and then are considered through a competitive review process.
