“Veteran’s Upward Bound has been instrumental in my success at SMCC. The tutoring is in-depth and always flexible with my schedule, and the tutors are exceedingly patient and helpful in filling in the gaps in my educational experience. They are a fantastic resource for veterans, and their support and knowledge have been invaluable throughout my scholastic career.” ~ Ryan M., Air Force Veteran
“I just graduated this spring from SMCC. I spent my last semester applying to USM and working on scholarships. I worked with the Veterans Upward Bound Program and I have been accepted into USM and my classes are fully paid for. The transition was easy and I’m signed up for six classes for the fall. I should have my degree by next summer and I am so glad I discovered the Veterans Upward Bound program because I never would have pursued this on my own.” ~ Corrie S., Navy Veteran
“When I found myself down and out I never thought that I would be training for an entirely new life… Veterans Upward Bound made that possible.” ~ Tim K., Navy Veteran
