Marian University’s Upward Bound Math and Science (UBMS) program is gearing up to host its eighth summer college and career readiness session, which will begin on Monday, June 22.
Marian’s UBMS program provides educational services during the academic year and for a six-week period during the summer. It is primarily funded by the U.S. Department of Education, with additional institutional support, which allows the program to provide its services at no cost to participants and families. Program participants are high school students enrolled in either the Fond du Lac or North Fond du Lac School Districts who meet the eligibility requirements.
This year’s summer session will be held virtually, designed specifically to allow participants to be involved in multiple intellectually stimulating activities as well as independent learning experiences.
Local educators will teach the following six courses:
- Applied Botany
- Film Analysis
- Practical Life Math
- Science/Technology and Society
- Spanish in Latin America
- Writing for New Media
Professionals from various fields will conduct workshops in the areas of academic support, college enrollment planning, career exploration, financial education, and personal development.
The program is still accepting applications from eligible students who are entering Grades 9-12 in September 2020.
