Welcome to TRIO Upward Bound Grand Rapids!
We're glad you're here.
The GVSU TRIO Upward Bound (UB) Grand Rapids program is designed to assist high school students from traditionally underserved backgrounds reach their potential by earning a college degree. UB serves high school students from low-income families and who are first-generation college students (their parents did not graduate from college with a bachelor's degree), and primarily supports students at Grand Rapids Public Schools (GRPS) Innovation Central and Union High Schools.
We're here to help students build the academic skills, motivation, and self-confidence they need for success in a college setting. How do we do this? We do this by providing fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance, including a variety of services.
UB Grand Rapids provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their high school performance, and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. What are you waiting for?
