Testimonials

  • Upward Bound is a program that is giving me more options and new experiences. It’s very important to me because it’s helping me achieve goals that I wouldn’t be able to accomplish due to my family’s low income.

    Emily Castro

  • Upward Bound has given me the skills to succeed not only through education but through life…I now enjoy the process of learning, studying, and most of all I now strive for excellence.

    Sara Wines

  • TRiO programs give students a sense of hope when wondering how they are going to be able to pay for schooling. Student Support Services, the program I came to college through has helped me develop confidence within myself to succeed more.

    Rick Owens

  • I attended the Richard Lugar Symposium. I must tell you that experience has given me the confidence to pursue a career in government. Though you [Richard Lugar] are my inspiration, I thank Talent Search for getting me involved. Our country needs more of these programs to get the youth of America interested and involved in their communities.

    Sara Wines
    Vincennes University – Upward Bound
  • There are many students on the streets trying to accomplish great goals, yet there are no building blocks to support them on their path. TRiO programs give students the building blocks, a mentor and support system.

    Julia Cook‐Jones
    Purdue University – Calumet‐ Upward Bound
  • I am so very thankful for these programs. I would not be able to do some of the things I have been able to do. My family has been hit extremely hard with illness…These programs help families like mine. Please keep this in mind when discussing budget cuts.

  • TRiO programs have been very supportive. TRiO has offered many services that have helped me such as tutoring, grant opportunities, TRiO conferences and group meetings.

    Hannah Jordan

  • Educational Talent Search is a truly beneficial program. If it has helped me so much, I can’t imagine how much it can help others. This program should be around for years to come to help other students, too.

    Kristi Ashby
    Vincennes University – Educational Talent Search
  • Without these programs I don’t think that I would be graduating in four years from college. Many students don’t have the same equal opportunities in college and keeping these programs will give college students a better chance to be successful.
