What is Upward Bound Math-Science?

Upward Bound Math-Science is a federally funded TRiO program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education.  The goal of UBMS is to help eligible students recognize and develop their potential  in math and science, and to achieve the skills and motivation needed to complete postsecondary programs that lead to careers in mathematics and science.   The UBMS experience includes:

  • Mentored research in a STEM field during a six week summer residential experience at Lyon College

  • Career exploration

  • ACT Preparation

  • Tutoring and workshops to strengthen academic skills

  • Cultural enrichment, including weekend visits to museums, theaters and other attractions

  • A three-day end of summer trip to a regional city such as St. Louis, Tulsa or Dallas

  • Academic year activities to strengthen preparation for college

There is no cost to students.  All expenses are covered through funding from the U.S. Department of Education, including room and board during the residential Summer Session; hotel, meals and entrance fees on field trips; and all education materials needed for classes.  Students in good standing also receive a $15 weekly stipend during Summer Session.
