The TRIO Upward Bound program helps to generate skills and motivation necessary for success in education beyond high school among low-income and potential first-generation college students and veterans. The goal of the program is to increase the academic performance and motivation levels of eligible enrollees so that such persons may complete secondary school and successfully pursue postsecondary educational programs.
Students must have completed the 8th grade, be between the ages of 13 and 19 (except for children of war veterans) and have a need for academic support in order to pursue a program of postsecondary education. All students must be either from low-income families or be potential first-generation college students. The program requires that two-thirds of the participants in a project must be both low-income and potential first-generation college students. The remaining one-third must be either low-income or potential first-generation college students. Students are selected based on recommendations from local educators, social workers, clergy, or other interested parties.
To apply for this program, please contact your high school’s guidance counselor.
