Additional Upward Bound Grant


ORS recently received notification that we were awarded a new Upward Bound grant to serve additional schools in Johnson County, including Rio Vista High School & Keene High School, beginning Fall 2017. This UB grant marks the fourth TRIO Program awarded to ORS, and will allow more low-income high schools students the opportunity to prepare for college. 


Most grantees for Upward Bound are large universities. ORS is one of only a handful of nonprofit organizations that successfully implement TRIO Programs, and one of only a few that serve rural areas.
