TREASURE COAST -

The U.S. Department of Education has awarded $2.8 million to Indian River State College to help 165 students acquire the knowledge and skills they need to access and succeed in college through Upward Bound.

Seventy-two of the participants will be at-risk high-school students living in the inner city of Fort Pierce and 65 students will be from Indian River County.

IRSC has a strong track record of success increasing pre-college performance and college success among its Upward Bound participants.

About 90 percent of the students enrolled in post-secondary education after high school graduation.

Upward Bound, one of seven programs collectively known as the federal TRIO programs, provides disadvantaged youth with connections to high quality tutoring services, career advising, and academic enrichment activities and college preparation.
