To be eligible to participate in Upward Bound, students must demonstrate an academic potential for post-secondary education. Upward Bound is not concerned about your current grades, but what you CAN do. Eligible students must also be classified as first-generation college students* and/or come from families with low incomes.
*Classification as a first-generation college student means that neither parent has graduated from college with a four-year degree.
It costs nothing to be in Upward Bound, as the costs of the program are covered under a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. In addition, each Upward Bound member receives a stipend each week he/she attends.
If interested, please fill out an Upward Bound application.
