The TRiO Upward Bound students at Idaho State University invite all to attend TRiO Upward Bound’s 50th Anniversary Carnival Monday, July 14 on the ISU Quad starting at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to all ages.
The carnival highlights the theme “Celebrating College Access.” TRiO Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math Science high school students participating in ISU’s six-week residential college preparation program this summer have prepared carnival booths related to higher education.
The TRiO programs were the first national college access and retention programs to address the serious social and cultural barriers to education in America. In 1965, the TRiO Upward Bound programs were launched across the United States, Idaho State University was one of the originally funded programs launched in 1965, making it one of the oldest TRiO Upward Bound programs in the nation.
TRiO Upward Bound is a federally funded program that provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. TRiO Upward Bound serves high school students from low-income families; and students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor’s degree.
The TRiO Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math Science grants work with 9-12 graders to help prepare them for the rigor of a college curriculum. The ISU Upward Bound/Upward Bound Math Science grants serve 12 high schools in southeastern Idaho: American Falls, Aberdeen, Pocatello, Century, Highland, Sho-Ban, Snake River, Blackfoot, Firth, Shelley, Bonneville, and Idaho Falls.
