Please check back on this site for updates on our proposed GradBound Program.

The GradBound Program prepares and transitions undergraduate students at University of Colorado Boulder who demonstrate strong academic potential for graduate or professional school.  The program primarily engages underserved, underrepresented, first-generation, low-income, and other nontraditional students in retention and enrichment activities that support timely degree completion as well as facilitate competitive admission to post-baccalaureate programs.  The goal is to improve the pathway of disadvantaged students into careers that require graduate or professional credentials by providing summer research and internship opportunities; seminars, tutoring, or other supplementary instruction; academic counseling and faculty mentoring; and academic or cultural events.

In the meantime, please visit the National McNair Scholars website and the TRiO McNair website for information on the federal program.
