CU Upward Bound students are recruited from a Target Area comprised of six American Indian reservation communities, each of which has historical tribal ties to the state of Colorado. In order to join the CUUB program, potential CUUB students must reside within the Target Area and/or attend one of the following high schools:
Pine Ridge Reservation
Ramah Navajo Community
Southern Ute Reservation
Ute Mountain Ute Community
Students who have never attended any of the above schools and reside outside of the Target Area definied by these communities are not eligible to apply for CU Upward Bound. See our Eligibility page for more details.
