Upward Bound

Upward Bound is a publicly-funded program who's goal is to give intelligent children who are in categories that make them less likely to attend college (such as low income, parents who didn't attend college, and living in rural areas) the tools they need to get into, pay for, and succeed in college.

Most Upward Bound programs combine two elements:

  1. a summer program where high school students take college prep classes and earn work experience at a college campus for six weeks
  2. weekly followup with students during the school year. This program has helped thousands of students who would otherwise not make it to college attain their full potential.
