The goal of the University of San Francisco Upward Bound Project is to prepare bright and promising high school students, from educationally and economically disadvantaged backgrounds, to succeed in college.
The University of San Francisco Upward Bound Project has been a part of
the USF community since 1966. The Upward Bound Math and Science Program,
in 2007, is designed specifically to prepare students for college
majors and careers focused on "STEM" fields (Science, Technology,
Engineering and Math). Program alumni have graduated from, or
currently attend, colleges with some of the nation's best STEM programs and included an Ivy League Rhode Scholar.
Ninety percent (90%) of all Upward Bound students who complete our program enter college. The University of San Francisco Upward Bound Program is a federally funded program hosted by the University of San Francisco.
