Hi Upward Bound Scholars,

We hope this message finds you and your family members well, as we all navigate these unprecedented times resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Like many of you, our lives have changed dramatically at all levels.

Just a few weeks ago, we were all looking forward to many fun-packed educational and cultural programs that we had carefully put together for you this spring. We want to assure you that our commitment to you has not changed – far from it! 

Upward Bound is thinking of all of you, we are currently working on ways to continue to provide you college preparatory support and services during this period.

Please stay tuned to this page for updates.
