NCMC Upward Bound Program Accepting Applications

The Upward Bound program at North Central Missouri College in Trenton is now recruiting and accepting participant applications for the 2024-2025 school year. High School students from Brookfield, Chillicothe, Gallatin, Hamilton, Trenton, and Tri-County are invited to submit applications through their school counselor. The priority deadline for Upward Bound applications is Wednesday, May 8th. Students are encouraged to apply online at the Upward Bound website. Applications are also available through the guidance office at each school.

The purpose of the program is to help students overcome class, social, academic, and cultural barriers to higher education through academic instruction, advising, tutoring, motivational and study skills, college visits, and other support services to aid those interested in attending college after high school.

Upward Bound is 100% federally funded by the U.S. Department of Education to assist high school students in preparation for successful college entrance. Upward Bound at NCMC is currently funded at an annual rate of $309,505.00.
