Upward Bound Student Eligibility and Application

Eligibility Requirements

Upward Bound at UW-Superior is open to you if you meet these requirements: 

  • Students who are in grades 9-11 in the Superior School District
  • Students whose families meet income guidelines (2/3 are low income as determined by the U.S. Department of Education)
  • Students are from a family in which neither parent has graduated from a four-year college
  • Students who have been identified as having the potential for success in post-secondary education, such as college, university, professional or technical school. Students need not have received especially high grades in school to initially qualify.
  • After filling out the application below and establishing eligibility, two recommendations from adults and an interview are required. Students must show a willingness to make a commitment to participate throughout high school until graduation and to keep Upward Bound notified of post-secondary progress.
