Upward Bound Application Deadline Approaching
The deadline for Upward Bound applications is just over a week away. High school students in the Chillicothe, Gallatin, Grundy R-V of Galt, Hamilton, Trenton, and Jamesport school districts are invited to apply for the Upward Bound Program based at North Central Missouri College in Trenton. The school is accepting participant applications through their high school counselor. Students who are selected to join the UB program will be able to begin in November.
Upward Bound is a 100% federally funded program that assists high school students to prepare for successful college entrance. Its purpose is to help students to overcome barriers to higher education through academic instruction, college visits, cultural activities and other support services. Students make new friends and have fun, all while gaining that extra “push” necessary to attend college and find the right career.
