Eligibility/Students Served

Students must have completed the 8th grade but not completed the first semester of their junior year 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 (low-income guidelines) and/or be potential first-generation college students. Upward Bound strives to provide services to students who are traditionally underrepresented in postsecondary education. They must also attend one of the target schools and have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0.
