Thank you so much for your interest in the University of New Hampshire Upward Bound program! UNH Upward Bound, a federally funded college preparatory program, provides services at no cost to 114 students attending Farmington, Somersworth, Spaulding, Manchester Central, Memorial, and West High Schools. Our mission is to help students develop the skills necessary to successfully graduate from high school and go on to college in order to earn a two or four-year degree within six-years of high school graduation. Since 1966, UNH Upward Bound has helped several thousand New Hampshire young people earn college degrees and improve their options for successful careers. Our program begins during the Academic Year and continues through the Summer Residential Academy.
