Gifts to WVU Upward Bound/TRIO are primarily used to fund scholarships to help students earn college credits while still in high school through payment of dual-enrollment and summer course tuition and fees, and for purchases of books and supplies.

Since 2008, students receiving financial assistance through WVU Upward Bound have earned more than 200 college credits. According to the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission, students who earn college credits while in high school have higher college persistence rates and graduate in fewer terms. Your support will provide more participants with real-world experience in college classes than they otherwise would be able to afford.

Funds may also be used to cover miscellaneous expenses associated with program implementation, fulfillment of federal standardized objectives, and attempts to increase student motivation and persistence.

Thank you for your support!
