About Upward Bound Math and Science

  • ​The philosophy of the IUP Upward Bound Math and Science Program evolves around the core of its existence: our students. Each program service and activity is designed to enable a successful journey toward earning a college degree.

    The purpose of UBMS is to provide participants with the requisite skills and motivation to matriculate from high school, enroll in college, and graduate with degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

    Our yearly calendar will help you keep track of school visits, Saturday Academies, and other events.
