The three Upward Bound Programs are federally funded operating on an annual budget of $884,865. Our three grants allows us to serve 186 participants annually.
Applying to the Upward Bound Program is easy.
Students who have the ability and the desire to go to college but lack the financial resources because of family income level or lack knowledge about the college preparation and admission process are highly encouraged to apply to Upward Bound starting as early as 9th grade.
