Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math Science are federal grant programs that provide fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance.
These programs provide opportunities for participants to succeed in their pre-college performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math Science serve high school students from low-income families and families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree.
The goal of Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math Science is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.
A donation to Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math Science helps young adults in Wyoming achieve a better career than they would be able to otherwise by better preparing them for a higher education. With this higher education, they can come back to Wyoming as trained, capable, and well qualified employees to help Wyoming's infrastructure grow.
