What is Upward Bound? En español
Upward Bound is a dynamic, academic enrichment program designed to prepare high school students for college. Upward Bound students come from families with limited financial resources and have parents who have not received a bachelor's degree. Upward Bound is a TRiO Program, federally funded by the Department of Education.
Why Participate in Upward Bound?
The Texas Tech University Upward Bound Program has been successful in granting opportunities to many first-generation college-bound students. Upward Bound prepares students with various experiences, career options, and diverse cultural activities. Along with providing the previous services to our students we assist our students with the financial aid process. By guiding our students we enhance their opportunities to pursue a degree and continue on with their academic careers.
