UBMS Programs

The University of Texas at Arlington has been awarded a grant from the United States Department of Education to conduct an Upward Bound Math & Science Program. The UT Arlington Upward Bound Math & Science Center (UBMS) provides to the eligible students the assistance necessary to strengthen their math and science education and assist them in demonstrating competencies in the subject areas required for graduation and success in STEM. The objectives of the program are designed to meet the specific needs of each participant.
