Upward Bound is a college preparatory program funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Eligible high school students receive tutoring, counseling and classroom instruction designed to help them enter and successfully complete a post-secondary program. During the school year, academic services are provided on a weekly basis. Educational workshops and field trips for cultural, career, educational and recreational experiences are also included. 

During the summer, students attend a 4-week non-residential program followed by a 2-week residential program at Oregon State University. Students live in the residence halls from Sunday-Thursday, then spend the weekends at home. The 6-week summer program consists of classroom instruction, discussion groups, recreational and cultural activities, college visitations and college admissions assistance. The United States Department of Education and Oregon State University pay all costs.There will also be a stipend for those who actively participate in the program.
