Project F.A.M.E/ Upward Bound seeks to contribute to the cultivation of future leaders
by providing high school students with a variety of academic, leadership, and cultural
enrichment opportunities designed to generate high levels of achievement in precollege
performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits.
The Upward Bound Program is a pre-collegiate initiative sponsored by Chicago State
University and funded by the U.S. Department of Education, since 1983. This program
serves approximately 115 high school students each year. The Upward Bound Program
works with students who have the desire and potential to attend college, but need
supplemental academic support and college-readiness services to help them realize
WHAT ARE THE EXPECTATIONS OF UPWARD BOUND STUDENTS?
Upward Bound students must be committed to the successful completion of high school
and college. Participants must be willing to work hard towards that goal, have a sincere
desire to expand their knowledge, and demonstrate perseverance. Preparing for college
requires a PERSONAL COMMITMENT.
