TRIO Upward Bound (TRIO UB)

TRIO Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. TRIO UB serves: high school students from low-income families; and high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal of TRIO UB is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.
