Welcome to Upward Bound!

The Upward Bound Program provides fundamental support in preparing high school scholars for college success. The program provides early exposure to research and scholarly activities that provide opportunities for scholars to succeed in high school and ultimately in higher education.

Upward Bound serves high school scholars from low-income families and high school scholars from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which scholars succeed and complete high school and enroll in and graduate from college.
