About the Upward Bound Program

Welcome to ECSU's upward bound program website/page!


Elizabeth City State University’s Upward Bound Program provides fundamental support to high school students preparing to attend college. This federally funded program is also designed to motivate students academically and to provide opportunities for participants to improve their pre-college performance and ultimately succeed in higher education pursuits.

Since the 1970’s, this program has served numerous students throughout Northeastern North Carolina who displayed the academic potential for completing college.

Through the program’s academic, social and cultural offerings, the participants have the opportunity to develop and nourish their thirst for learning and self-improvement.






ECSU’s Upward Bound participants are “REACHING for Success…

A World of Possibilities.”
