Educational Talent Search (ETS) and Upward Bound (UB) are federally funded programs designed to motivate, support, and encourage low-income, first generation students to graduate from high school and continue on to a post-secondary school of their choice. ETS and UB are administered by Diablo Valley College. Students from Mt. Diablo Unified School District are preparing for college by participating in ETS and UB.
Students must meet program eligibility guidelines, be between the ages of 11 and 27 and have completed the fifth grade. In any given project year, two-thirds of the participants must be low-income and potential first-generation college students. ETS English and ETS Spanish Application and UB Application forms
