Greater Orlando Upward Bound Math and Science Program

The Greater Orlando Upward Bound Math and Science Program strengthens participating students' math and science skills. The program's goal is to help students recognize and develop their potential to excel in math and science and encourage them to pursue postsecondary degrees in math and science and ultimately careers in the math and science profession.

The program provides summer programs with intensive math and science training, year-round counseling and advisement, exposure to university faculty members, and participant-conducted scientific research under the guidance of faculty members or graduate students. The U.S. Department of Education fully funds the program.
