Program Description

Upward Bound is a federally-funded TRiO program that serves high school students from as early as ninth grade and assists them through their transition to college. One of the program's main objectives is to stimulate student interest in completing a bachelor's degree. The program creates a college atmosphere for students and makes learning innovative and fun. Participation in field trips, cultural activities, and an annual awards ceremony also add to the available opportunities.

TRiO Upward Bound, headquartered at Prince George's Community College, offers academic instruction, tutoring, and guidance to high school students from three Prince George's County High Schools.
