Academic Support Programs
Our mission at Upward Bound is to provide fundamental support to participants in their preparation for postsecondary education. We aim to provide opportunities for participants to succeed in secondary school and ultimately in higher education pursuits. Our goal is to increase the rates at which participants enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.
Dear Friends of UVM's Upward Bound:
With 3 weeks to go before we would have had to close our doors on 8/31/12, we were notified that our program was refunded for the next 5 years! We have been so busy closing down our previous grant cycle while starting up our new grant cycle that we neglected to get this good news out to everyone in any sort of official manner. No doubt some of you already know of our refunding. Still, we wanted to tell you how much we appreciate all your thoughts, prayers, and actions on our behalf during our refunding struggle. Thank you for allowing us to continue to help low-income/first-generation-college students at BHS & WHS as they pursue their dream of obtaining higher education.
Our new grant requires us to implement new programs and serve more students than in the past, so we hope we can continue and expand the partnerships we have had with all of you. If you would like to discuss any of this with any of us, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are where we always have been and hope to be for awhile.
Thanks again. We wish you all the best!
