The Temple University Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math & Science Programs in partnership with Steppingstone Scholars offer extensive support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The programs provide opportunities for participants to succeed in their high school courses and co-curricular activities, and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. UB and UBMS serve high school students from low-income families and/or from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree. Students must have an interest in enrolling in college. The goal of UB and UBMS is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education. Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math and Science have been highly successful in achieving their mission of preparing and graduating future college scholars.
