The Upward Bound Math-Science (UBMS) program works with eligible high school students to achieve the academic preparation, motivation, and confidence needed to complete high school and successfully pursue postsecondary programs, especially in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) field. The program serves students from low-income families and/or students that are potential first-generation college students.
UBMS aims to help students recognize and develop their potential to excel in the fields of math and science and to pursue postsecondary degrees in these fields. UBMS hosts both a Residential Summer Session and an Academic Year Session. All UBMS programming is 100% free to students and their families.
The Federal TRIO Programs (TRIO) are Federal outreach and student services programs designed to motivate and support students from disadvantaged backgrounds. TRIO includes eight outreach and support programs targeted to serve low-income, first-generation college students and students with disabilities to progress through the academic pipeline from middle school to post baccalaureate programs. Upward Bound Math-Science (UBMS) is one of two TRIO programs available on the campus of Lyon College: both programs are funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
