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 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.
