The TRIO Upward Bound (UB) program at CSU is a federally-funded grant sponsored by the Department of Education.  UB Participants receive one-on-one mentoring from professional staff advisors to guide them through post-secondary admission and financial aid processes.

Upward Bound focuses on identifying qualified youth who are low-income and potential first-generation college students in order to support and encourage them in pursuit of post-secondary enrollment.  Staff assist high school students in developing academic, social, and leadership skills in order to prepare them for post-secondary rigors, success and graduation.
