Marian University’s Upward Bound Math and Science (UBMS) program is funded to serve 62 high school students from the Fond du Lac and North Fond du Lac School Districts. Applications are accepted in fall and spring of each academic year, and new applicants are admitted to the program until all spots are filled.
Eligible students who are interested in joining UBMS must discuss their participation with their parents and/or legal guardians. Parents should, then, encourage them to fill out application forms, help them gather supporting documents (indicated in the application forms), and submit three recommendation forms. One of these recommendations must be from a school counselor (including a counselor from a different school if need be), administrator, or student services staff member, and the remaining must be by two previous or current teachers (at least one of them must teach science or math).
