  • Welcome

    The Upward Bound project at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is dedicated to the preparation for, admission to, and successful completion of a college degree for eligible high school students.

    Through academic support, guided experiences, volunteer and job shadow opportunities, and much, much more, UB students are four times more likely to graduate from college than their peers from similar background.             

    Summer Tutor Application deadline has been extended for FEMALE RESIDENTIAL applicants.


    Summer tutor applications, and Teacher applications are now being accepted.  Applications will be reviewed when received and positions are being offered until filled.


    We will be hiring 6-8 residential staff.  These are skills based positions that take into account gender due to living with minor students.

    Due to the applications received, we continue to accept female residential applications

    Non-residential tutors are hired in areas not filled by the residential staff.
