Purpose of Program:
The Upward Bound (UB) Program is one of the seven programs known as the Federal TRIO Programs.

The UB Program is a discretionary grant program that supports projects designed to provide students with the skills and motivation necessary to complete a program of secondary education and to enter into, and succeed in, a program of postsecondary education.

There are three types of grants under the UB Program:
UB; Veterans UB; and UB Math and Science (UBMS) grants.

In this notice we invite applications for Veterans UB (VUB) grants only.

The invitations to apply for UB and UBMS grants were published in an earlier issue of the Federal Register.

The VUB Program supports projects designed to prepare, motivate, and assist military veterans in the development of academic and other skills necessary for acceptance into and success in a program of postsecondary education.

VUB grantees are required to provide the services listed in section 402C(b) and (c) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA) (20 U.S.C.

1070a-13), and in 34 CFR 64 5. 1 5. Grantees may also provide the permissible services in section 402C(d) of the HEA.

Background:
The VUB Program is a critical component of the Department's efforts to improve college readiness, college access, college selection, and degree completion for veterans.

To more strategically align the VUB Program with broader reform strategies intended to improve postsecondary access and completion, and consistent with the Department's increasing emphasis on promoting evidence-based practices through our grant competitions, the Secretary will also evaluate applications on the extent to which the components of the proposed project are supported by ``strong theory''--that is, a rationale for the proposed process, product, strategy, or practice that includes a logic model.

We encourage applicants to read carefully the Selection Criteria section of this notice.

Resources to assist applicants in creating a logic model can be found here:
