Upward Bound

Upward Bound


UC Davis Upward Bound is a federally funded educational program. The goal of Upward Bound is to provide high school students who are low income or whose parents who did not attend college better opportunities for attending college.  We offer both a summer program and academic support during the school year. We offer these services to students who qualify at our partner schools located in Sacramento, Shasta, Siskiyou, and Solano counties.


UC Davis Upward Bound Awarded Five Grants

Program is administered by the School’s REEd Center

Upward Bound Sacramento-Solano students meet on the UC Davis campus during their summer residence program.

The School of Education’s REEd Center has received five federal Upward Bound grants totaling more than $8.7 million to continue serving 348 high school students in Sacramento, Solano, Shasta and Siskiyou counties over the next five years.

“The students in our Upward Bound programs have so much promise and untapped potential, but their opportunities might have been limited by their socioeconomic status,” said Car Mun Kok, PhD, Director of College Opportunity Programs for the UC Davis School of Education.
