Thank you for your interest in the Upward Bound program at Lincoln Memorial University. To be considered for the Upward Bound program, students must meet the eligibility requirements and must fill out an application during our recruitment time period.
Who is eligible for Upward Bound?
There are 70 students in our program from Middlesboro, KY, Campbell County, Claiborne County, Grainger County, Hancock County and Union County, TN. Students must meet at least one of the following criteria in order to be accepted into the program: 1) family income meets federal guidelines, and/or 2) neither parent obtained a degree from a four - year college. Students start the three/four - year program in the beginning of their freshman year and remain in the program until they begin their college career.
What is involved with filling out the application?
We ask that each student who is interested in becoming a part of this program to submit an application no later than the date announced for their particular school. The application asks for basic student information, two copies of a transcript release form (one for the Upward Bound office and one for the school's Guidance office), and finally a copy of the parent's tax information (for federal income guidelines only - information is kept confidential).
When can a student apply?
Recruitment start mid-August and continue until all spots are full.
