Upward Bound Trio Program logo

The TRIO Upward Bound program is a college preparatory program for high school students from low-income households who have the potential to be first-generation college students. In existence at Baldwin Wallace since 1968, Upward Bound gives participants the tools they need to achieve their highest potential. As a TRIO program funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, all services are free to participants.
