UI Upward Bound Project canceled for entire summer

The University of Iowa Upward Bound Project is cancelled for the entire summer due to the flooding. Participants are being notified directly by Upward Bound staff.

An estimated 62 students were signed up to participate in the 2008 Upward Bound Project, said Upward Bound Director Jeanne Meyer. The program serves high school students who would be the first in their family to receive a college degree and/or whose family’s income met U. S. Department of
Education guidelines.
