Upward Bound Program

The Upward Bound Program was established at RIC in 1966. It is designed to instill in low-income, potential first-generation college students the skills and motivation to complete high school and to enter and graduate from college. Upward Bound is committed to providing equal access and opportunity to students from specific target high schools who meet federal eligibility requirements. The program enhances the intellectual, emotional, character and motivational development of each participant by offering rigorous academic instruction, counseling, support services and an environment that recognizes individual differences and academic potential.
