Upward Bound Math and Science

Classroom of students working in the UBMS Field Science group

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 Flyer.

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:
  • Individual and group study/tutoring sessions
  • Academic and social counseling
  • PSAT/SAT prep
  • College application and FAFSA guidance
  • College visits and cultural field trips also take place during the academic year.

The UBMS Summer Program is a six-week residential program on the IUP campus. Students are taught by professors in biology, physics, and math; sleep in dorms; and eat in dining halls. Students go home on the weekends, and the small-scale “college life” experience helps students become comfortable in and around campus, easing their transition from high school to college.
