How Do I Apply?
Any 9th - 12th grade student who attends Allen County-Scottsville, Butler County, Edmonson County, Hart County, Logan County, and Russellville High Schools is eligible to apply for the Upward Bound (UB) program. We are looking for students who are in good academic standing and who want to attend college or vocational school after high school graduation. At some schools we talk to the entire freshmen class and at others we talk to students who have been referred to us by counselors or teachers. If you are interested in being in the UB program, talk with your high school counselor and ask to be referred.
Once we have spoken with you about the program, you will need to fill out the application package. You can print the application by clicking on the "application package" link or you can get one from a UB counselor. After the application is received, we will collect grades and test scores from your school and you and your parents will be interviewed (separately). You will then be notified whether or not you have been selected to participate in the UB program.
