NMSU TRIO Upward Bound program accepting applications for spring

New Mexico State University’s TRIO Upward Bound Gadsden Independent School District/Las Cruces Public Schools program is now accepting applications for 26 new high school participants from Gadsden, Santa Teresa, Mayfield, Las Cruces and Oñate High Schools.


“Why should students join NMSU’s TRIO Upward Bound GISD/LCPS Program? They will receive help to complete high school and prepare for college – it is never too early, and help to understand ACT/SAT, admissions, financial aid and scholarship paperwork. They will learn more about NMSU and visit regional and out-of-state universities. The students will become part of TRIO’s Crimson Summer Institute, and they will have the opportunity to enroll and graduate from college,” said Rosa De La Torre-Burmeister, TRIO Upward Bound program director.

NMSU’s TRIO Upward Bound program is looking for students who want to attend college and earn a bachelor’s degree, are committed to attending all scheduled events, and will complete the assigned work, participate in activities and maintain a good attendance record.
