The Upward Bound Program

EMU Upward Bound is a Federally-funded pre-college academic program designed to provide students from Ypsilanti Community High Schools and Ypsilanti New Tech High School with the academic skills enhancement and motivation necessary to obtain a college degree. EMU Upward Bound services and activities are free to those who participate in the program. Participants can even earn a monthly stipend for miscellaneous education expenses.

EMU Upward Bound provides its students a unique support system in the following areas:

College readiness & planning; Career exploration; Social & cultural enrichment 













EMU Upward Bound is staffed by experienced, caring counselors and professionals who want to help young people achieve their dreams.

Upward Bound Works! An Upward Bound student's chance of earning a bachelor's degree is 4x greater than that of a non-Upward Bound student from a similar background.
