Each year, the University of Montevallo Upward Bound students participate in collecting donations with the annual Holiday Tree Fundraiser.  With the proceeds from this event, many deserving high school students are awarded scholarships for college.  While Upward Bound is a federally funded pre-college program, any scholarship money awarded must be earned at the local level.
