Upward Bound

The Upward Bound program is federally funded through the Department of Education and designed to assist potential first-generation college students with the necessary skills to enter into the post-secondary segment. ULM’s Upward Bound program has been in existence for over three years.

The Upward Bound program has two components — an academic component and a summer component.

ULM’s Upward Bound serves several parishes through its grant, including Ouachita Parish, Morehouse Parish and Richland Parish, and students currently in the ULM program represent Rayville High School, Bastrop High School, Richwood High School and Wossman High School.
