Upward Bound is a federally funded grant program through the
United States Department of Education. It is incorporated within the Diversity and
College Access department at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The purpose of the Upward Bound Program is to
prepare those students who are economically and socially underrepresented in
higher education due to their families’ educational background and income level to enter and complete postsecondary
education of choice.
University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point Upward Bound will serve
as an avenue in helping students excel in all areas of life. It strives to produce the motivation and skills
necessary for low income, first generation students to successfully complete postsecondary
education and have a positive impact on their families and communities as a
result of their participation in educational, social, and cultural services
offered by our program. We make success stories!
