Students of the Summer College Program gather together at the Upward Bound Jamboree hosted at the University of Vermont in 2017.

UVM Upward Bound recruits students from Winooski and Burlington High School (9th-11th grade) whose parents did not attend college and who need financial support in order to attend college. Enrollment is limited and in some years applications are competitive. We are searching for students who do well in their classes, want to go to college, and are willing to challenge themselves. 


CLICK HERE TO APPLY TO UVM UPWARD BOUND (make sure your parent/guardian signs their name digitally at the end of the application!)


Once completed applications are received, the Upward Bound staff will review your application, supporting materials, as well as your academic transcript and contact you with further information. If you have any questions, please contact Rahelle Gogerly-Moragoda, Upward Bound Program Assistant Director.
