Upward Bound Math/Science (UBMS) is a federally funded TRIO program under the U.S. Department of Education. UBMS provides assistance and guidance high school students interested in obtaining a degree in the fields of math or science. In order to be eligible, students must be eligible for the program by qualifying as the first in their family to obtain a four-year Bachelors degree, or by meeting our income cap. For additional information on TRIO, visit http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ope/trio/index.html.
The University of Delaware’s program has been assisting students to achieve the goal of higher education since 1992, when national funding for UBMS programs began. There are two major components of the UBMS program: a summer residential program and academic-year programming. For six weeks in the summer, students take intensive classes in math, science, English, foreign language and technology, and attend study sessions with tutors. During the academic year, UBMS offers monthly workshops on careers, financial aid, study skills, and SAT preparation. Students also attend college tours and cultural trips.
We are committed to developing a community of support that will encourage our students to reach for and realize their potential as students and members of the larger society.
