Upward Bound Math and Science

The goal of the Upward Bound Math and Science program is to help students recognize and develop their potential to excel in math and science and to encourage them to pursue post-secondary degrees  and ultimately careers, in math and science.


Upward Bound Programs (UB/UBMS) Application


The program is divided into two periods of instruction: summer and academic year. During the summer, students come to Idaho State University for eight weeks to take classes concentrating on basic skill improvement in math, English, and science, as well as other courses. Students live on campus and participate in a variety of activities as well as study hall after classes each day. The academic year follow-up offers tutoring and advising to students on a weekly basis.
