What are the Upward Bound Programs?

Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math Science are college access programs designed to help high school students succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits.


The Upward Bound Programs at Morehead State University operate four grants. Two classic Upward Bound programs and two Math Science programs. The main difference between these two programs is that those interested in joining Math Science must have an interest in a STEM career. You do not have to have an interest in a STEM career to join the classic program.
