Upward Bound / Upward Bound Math & Science

Upward Bound is a college preparatory program designed to generate the skills and motivation necessary for success in post-secondary education among high school students who are low income and potential first generation college students. The mission of Upward Bound is to encourage and assist high school students who are traditionally underrepresented in post-secondary education because of income, family educational background and/or other relevant federal, state, or institutional criteria, in the preparation for, entry to, and completion of a post-secondary education.

The Upward Bound program consists of an academic year and summer residential component. During the academic year, Upward Bound participants meet weekly after school for advising, tutoring and special activity sessions. The six-week summer residential component is conducted on the campus of the University of Georgia.
