Upward Bound Math-Science: Program Description and Interim Impact Estimates
Upward Bound Math-Science: Program Description and Interim Impact Estimates (2006) examines the Upward Bound Math-Science (UBMS) program established in 1990 to prepare disadvantaged high school students for college success in the areas of math and science. The study collected data (participant surveys and student transcripts) on a random sample of UBMS students who participated between 1993 and 1995. A matched comparison group was drawn from the regular Upward Bound impact study. The focus is on high school preparation for college, enrollment, and early college persistence. The findings suggest that UBMS improved high school grades in math and science, increased the likelihood of majoring in math and science, and increased the likelihood of completing a four-year degree in math and science.
