Project Upward Bound

Welcome to the Project Upward Bound (PUB) Program at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. PUB is an educational assistance program funded by the U.S. Department of Education. It is designed to assist qualifying high school students in developing the skills and motivation necessary for successful completion of post-secondary education or training. Services are provided to participants during the regular school year (Academic Year Program) and during six weeks in the summer (Summer Program).

A special college preparatory program (The Summer Bridge Program) is also offered for Upward Bound seniors who have graduated and plan to attend SIU.
