Applications for New Awards: Upward Bound Math and Science Program
The Upward Bound (UB) Program is one of the seven programs known as the Federal TRIO Programs, which provide postsecondary educational support for qualified individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. The UB Program is a discretionary grant program that supports projects designed to provide the skills and motivation necessary to complete a program of secondary education and to enter and succeed in a program of postsecondary education. There are three types of grants under the UB Program: regular UB grants, Veterans UB grants, and UB Math and Science (UBMS) grants. This notice announces deadlines and other information only for UBMS grants. The UBMS program supports projects designed to prepare high school students for postsecondary education programs that lead to careers in the fields of math and science. The Department of Education views the UBMS Program as a critical component in the effort to improve the quality of student outcomes so that more students are well prepared for college and careers. There are three competitive preference priorities for this grant competition. Applications are available June 20, 2012. The deadline for transmittal of applications is July 20, 2012. Deadline for intergovernmental review is September 18, 2012.
