TRiO Upward Bound is an engaging educational program that prepares low-income first-generation high school students for college. The program consists of a summer and academic-year component for participants from Baldwin, Maui, and Molokai High Schools. Participants enter program during their early high school years and continue with the program until high school graduation. Upward Bound is sponsored by the University of Hawaii Maui College with funding provided by the U.S. Department of Education. The program is offered at no cost to parents or students. In October 2012, UH Maui College was awarded a new program, Upward Bound Math and Science. The program provides similar services to eligible participants with a focus on preparing students for entry into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) college programs.
