About the Program

Math and Science

The Upward Bound Math and Science Program is designed to prepare participants for post-secondary education and motivate their exploration of science, mathematics and related educational professions. 

  • Participants are selected for involvement according to federal guidelines of being low income and/or potential first generation college graduates. 
  • Students must come from a low-income family and be the first in his/her family to pursue a college education. Students must also require academic support for pursuing education beyond high school.
  • There is no cost to eligible participants.
  • The Math and Science Program offers services to a homogeneous group of students, starting in the 9th grade and follows that same group of students through the 12th grade.
  • Students are selected from Illinois School Districts 189 (East St. Louis), 187 (Cahokia) and 12 (Madison), who are in grades 9-11 at the time of initial selection.
