The Upward Bound Math and Science (UBMS) program is designed to strengthen the academic (i.e. math and science) skills of participating students. The goal of the program is to help students recognize and develop their potential to excel in math and science and to encourage them to pursue postsecondary degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields and ultimately STEM careers.
UBMS serves students from Baltimore county and Baltimore city who have demonstrated their academic potential and their commitment to working hard to achieve the goal of obtaining a four year college degree. Participants must also meet the income and first generation criteria established by the U.S. Department of Education. The UBMS Program provides students, parents, with an opportunity to invest in students’ futures to help them realize their tremendous potential.
The UMBC Upward Bound Math Science Program is funded by the US Department of Education in the amount of $311,880.
