What is Upward Bound?

Upward Bound is a grant-funded federal program which provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program includes tutoring, workshops and cultural opportunities throughout the academic year and a 6-week summer residential program on the campus of Indiana Wesleyan University. Students complete step-by-step college preparation, explore career options and receive training to help prepare them to successfully transition to college and persist in attaining a college degree.

Upward Bound serves qualified high school students from low-income families, potential first-generation college students, and students who have a high risk of academic failure.
