The University of Maine Upward Bound requires four references to complete your application. Please consider your options, ask your cholces if they are willing and able to provide a reference, and then list them on this form. Upward Bound staff will send electronic forms via email to your references. Please let us know if you have a reference who needs accommodations and we will work with them.
