Upward Bound is a successful, college-based program of rigorous academic instruction, individual tutoring and counseling for low-income high school students, most of whom are the first generation of their families to enter post-secondary education.

During the summer, Upward Bound students live on campus and are involved in an intensive academic study program for six weeks.

During the academic year, Upward Bound students receive academic instruction, tutoring, and counseling after school and on Saturdays. Staff follow their progress in high school and the students learn about the college application process and how to apply for financial assistance.

Upward Bound is designed to prepare eligible pre-collegiate students for higher education by providing them with instruction in Science, History, Mathematics, English, Computer Science, Spanish Language, and Study Skills during the summer. ENMU-Roswell Upward Bound Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
