Focuses on Upward Bound's effects on students during high school and the first few years of college, finding limited impacts during high school on students as a whole, but larger impacts on some groups, notably those with lower educational expectations going into the program, those with poorer academic performance as high school freshmen, and those who remain in the program for at least two years.
