Program Description

Through the Department of Education Federal TRIO Programs (TRIO), LNESC is able to operate the Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math & Science, and Talent Search programs. TRIO programs are Federal outreach and student services programs designed to identify and provide services for individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.

LNESC's Upward Bound program specifically provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their pre-college performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves high school students from low-income families as well as high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of post-secondary education.
