Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves: high school students from low-income families; and high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.
Nevada State College was awarded two Upward Bound grants in 2007 that serve a total of 126 students from Basic, Chaparral, Eldorado, and Sunrise Mountain High Schools. For more information, please contact our office today at (702) 992-2144.
