The SDSU Upward Bound Programs are funded to serve 60 San Diego County students during the academic year and 50 during the summer. The program consists of two closely related components: a six-week summer residential program on the SDSU campus and an academic year program which serves as a follow-up for students who continue to participate. The targeted students are ethnically diverse and live in some of the most economically depressed areas of the county. The academic year activities include college-age mentors in high schools who work up to two hours weekly with students; home visits by year-round Upward Bound staff; individual learning plans/study skills development, college and financial aid application activities; college visitation trips; cultural field trips, and other services to ensure adequate college preparation and career/goal planning.
