TRIO Upward Bound (UB) is a pre-college program that not only assists high school students in completing high school but also pursue and completing post-secondary education. UB teaches students about college entrance exams, college choices, preparing for college while still in high school, and so much more.

TRIO UB offers a wide range of services that help students gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to successfully graduate high school.


Bring a Friend 

If you have a friend that is interested in the program but did not attend the informational presentation at your high school, bring them! Students do not have to attend the presentation to come to the Saturday meetings. Saturday Meetings are open to any and every student that is interested in TRIO Upward Bound. 
The first of five recruitment meetings is this Saturday! During this meeting, we will talk more about the program and the benefits of joining, get to know you a little more, and host a student panel of current TRIO UB members. The panel is a great time for you and your parent to ask questions and get students' perspectives and experience with the program. We are so excited to see you this Saturday!

Unigo's "I Have a Dream Scholarship"

It's crazy to think of all the amazing stories that happen as soon as we close our eyes and drift to sleep. It could be in a deep slumber or perhaps in a carefree daze, but our dreams can help shape our ideas, perceptions, and - now - education.

If we had that crazy contraption from "Inception," we could just live the dream with you. But, since we can't, we need you to tell us in our scholarship for dreamers. Did you have a dream that was off-the-wall, or maybe it was so real that you didn't know you were dreaming? Maybe you dream of a successful future or reaching your goals. Whatever your dreams might be, they could help you towards getting a scholarship for your college education.

 Scholarships don't have to exist in your rich reveries. Let your dreams be your muse - and your ticket to free money for school. One "dreamer" in our I Have a Dream Scholarship Scholarship will receive $1,500 to help make his or her educational dream come true.


 - Must be 14 years of age or older at time of application.
 - Must be a legal U.S. resident.
 - Must be a resident of one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia
 - This award is for U.S. students.


"We want to know... what do you dream about? Whether it's some bizarre dream you had last week, or your hopes for the future, share your dreams with us for a chance to win $1,500 for college." (250 words or less)

The I Have a Dream Scholarship winner will be notified by email or phone on or around April 30, 2021.
