Program Description

The TRiO Upward Bound Math Science Center (UBMS) is a federally funded program hosted by California State University-Dominguez Hills, that prepares low-income and first-generation high school students to pursue degrees and careers in math and science. We work to elevate students who have an interest in and talent for science, technology, engineering and math through intensive instruction, hands-on experiences and opportunities to learn from professional mathematicians and scientists in a variety of fields. The UBMS Program offers an academic-year component and a summer residential component. Students are required to participate in both components from freshman through senior year.
