Upward Bound is a component of the Center for Academic Success housed in the Living/Learning Center on the UVM campus. Program services are provided by a full-time Program Manager and an Outreach Coordinator and by a complement of adjunct and volunteer instructors, tutors, tutor-counselors and presenters.

Notably, Upward Bound maintains contact with our alumni through college graduation. In addition, staff will provide alumni participants advising and assistance while enrolled in college and, if requested, through the transfer process. Upward Bound is funded by the U.S. Department of Education Federal TRIO Programs at an annual rate of $277,134. The current funding cycle is from September 1, 2017 to August 31, 2022.
