In November of 2003 the staff members of Upward Bound at USM decided that not only should they be making ways to help students academically get to college but also financially. As a result Upward Bound at USM Dollars for Scholars was born.

Upward Bound at USM Dollars for Scholars is located in Gorham, Maine and is a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to college bound Upward Bound at USM students. Fundraising by volunteers makes this possible. This is why we strongly encourage student and parent participation in all of our activities!

There are many ways that Upward Bound at USM students and families can participate in helping Upward Bound at USM Dollars for Scholars. Check out our News & Events page or Volunteer page to see how you can get involved.
