Upward Bound

Upward Bound funding continued

Bevill State Community College’s TRIO program - Upward Bound (UB) — has been renewed. The total award for all programs combined is a little more than $1.2 million a year from the Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education. This grant assures the programs’ continuation for the next five years, through 2027.
