The University of Guam Upward Bound Program is a 100% federally funded program that aims to generate the skills and motivation necessary for college-bound low-income or first-generation students to successfully complete high school and enroll into college.

What is Upward Bound (UB)?
UB is designed to help 100 high school students prepare for college enrollment immediately after graduation. Participants receive services at the University of Guam and selected public high schools (George Washington, John F. Kennedy, Okkodo, Simon A. Sanchez, Southern, and Tiyan) as approved by the U.S. Department of Education.

UB is a national college preparation program hosted by UOG. It is 100% federally funded under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (as amended). UOG's UB has annual funding of $401,953. It is also part of the TRiO Programs, which include Educational Talent Search (ETS) and Student Support Services (SSS).
