Congress established a series of programs to assist low-income, first generation college students enroll in postsecondary education, obtain a college degree and move on to participate more fully in America’s economic and social life. The programs are funded under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and are known as the Federal TRIO Programs.
Upward Bound at Cal State Los Angeles:
Cal State LA is home to two Upward Bound grants and two Math and Science Upward Bound grants. The Upward Bound programs are designed to generate in participants the skills and motivation necessary for success in education beyond secondary school. The Upward Bound Math and Science programs are designed to prepare participants for postsecondary education programs that lead to careers in the fields of math and science.
The UB program strives to instill the importance and value of postsecondary education in its participants through a rigorous academic program and caring staff. Our goal is to generate in participants the skills and motivation necessary for success in secondary education and beyond.
We are in Upward Bound because we care about ourselves and for each other. We see this program as an exceptional opportunity to develop our potential and we intend to take full advantage of it. The spirit of Upward Bound is that of friendship, cooperation, respect and support for each other. It is also a spirit of honesty, dedication, and learning. This is our program. We are Upward Bound. If all of us do our best, then all of us will succeed.
