Upward Bound Math and Science Program
Mission: The Bronx Community College Upward Bound Program is a federal grant program funded by the United States Department of Education (USDOE) and is designed to generate the skills and motivation necessary for success in education beyond high school, particularly in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Upward Bound will, with the help of qualified professional staff, administer an array of services; assist low-income; first-generation high school students to overcome obstacles in their path which impede their educational growth; build self-esteem; increase educational aptitude; and motivate all participants to successfully graduate from secondary school. Participants will be further encouraged and assisted in enrolling in a postsecondary institution of their choice; and graduating with a baccalaureate degree and beyond in the STEM disciplines.
NUMBER OF STUDENTS SERVED: 60 secondary school students served annually.
