Upward Bound is a federally funded TRIO program designed to help first-generation, low-income students graduate from high school and enroll in the college of their choice. The Middle Georgia Center for Academic Excellence’s goal is for students to enroll in college and graduate within a 6-year period. This program is free to all students who are accepted and students who meet all monthly goals and expectations may receive a $25 stipend each month.
We are so thankful for Middle Georgia State University’s generosity and support of this program. They have allowed us access to their campuses for multiple events including our summer program. Our students also greatly benefit from tutoring sessions with Middle Georgia State University’s professors.
