Project to help south Stockton students with applying for college, financial aid, other services

University of the Pacific has been awarded a $1.3 million five-year federal grant for an Upward Bound project that will put eligible Edison High School students on a college-bound trajectory. The project will provide needed instruction, tutoring, advising, and assistance with applying for financial aid and college to help students graduate high school, enroll in college and earn a degree.

“It’s very exciting for all of us to be partnering with the Stockton Unified School District on what should be a very powerful, transformative opportunity to help Edison students make it through high school and onto college,” said Patrick Day, Pacific’s vice president for Student Life. “Upward Bound is a strong, proven program and will give students a great chance to succeed and someday give back to their communities.”
