Upward Bound Math/Science (UBMS) is a federally funded TRIO program under the U.S. Department of Education. We annually serve 66 eligible high school students in target high schools in Delaware and Maryland. For six weeks in the summer, students take intensive classes in math, science, English and a foreign language, attend study sessions with tutors, and live on UD's Newark campus with college students who serve in the dual roles of resident assistant and tutor. During the academic year, UBMS offers monthly workshops on careers, majors, financial aid and study skills, as well as college tours.
