Upward Bound Math and Science (UBMS) at IUP is a federally-funded TRiO program that provides enriching educational experiences to local Indiana County high school students. Please refer to our
UBMS is designed to strengthen math and science skills of potentially first-generation college students and/or low-income students. Scholars develop skills in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) and are encouraged to pursue post-secondary degrees in these fields.
Program benefits continue throughout the academic year:
The UBMS Summer Program is a FREE six-week residential program on the IUP campus. Students are taught science, math, foreign language, and writing skills to prep for the next academic year. They sleep in dorms, eat in dining halls, and go home on the weekends. This small-scale “college life” experience helps them become comfortable in and around campus, thus easing their transition from high school to college.
UBMS alumna Christina Bryner realized that a bachelor’s degree was within reach when she attended IUP’s UBMS program as a Blairsville High School student. She graduated with a degree from IUP in Accounting and Finance and currently works as an auditor in Pittsburgh.
