Eligibility

If you concluded your service in the Armed Forces in good standing; and either you receive a modest income and/or neither of your parents attained a bachelor's degree; and you have the desire to improve your life through higher education, you are invited to receive the benefits of Veterans Upward Bound.

The program is 100% funded by a Title IV grant from the U.S. Department of Education totaling $355,500. Project services are free to eligible veterans. Veterans Upward Bound is an Equal Opportunity in Education project, and therefore does not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, race, or disability.

"I was a little hesitant about going back to complete a college degree. After taking refresher classes and receiving financial aid advice and support from VUB, I decided to make college a priority and finish my degree. VUB was just what I needed."
