Are you a PIHS student who is currently in 9th, 10th, or 11th grade and may be either low-income or a first-generation college student? The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley Upward Bound program is looking to recruit students who are interested in generating the knowledge, skills, and motivation necessary for the success in postsecondary school. During the academic year, the program provides academic services to students on a weekly basis. During the summer, students attend college-simulated classes or college credit courses, and other enrichment classes, on campus Monday through Friday. There is NO cost to the student for being apart of this program.
