Upward Bound

"Its not just what you learn, it's who you will become."

Established at LMU in 2007 by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, Upward Bound is a TRIO Program designed to provide educational and personal support services to increase the high school graduation and college enrollment rates of its participants.

Upward Bound serves high school students from low-income families in which neither parent has earned a bachelor's degree. Services include: academic advising and workshops, tutoring, college visits, assistance with the college and financial aid application process, social activities, and a residential summer school experience on the LMU campus. The programs serves 58 students from Westchester Enriched Sciences Magnet (WESM).

Upward Bound ensures equitable access to, and services for participants. No student will be denied admission consideration based on gender, race, national origin, color, disability or age.
