LNESC/LULAC Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math & Science Programs


The LNESC/LULAC Upward Bound Math and Science Program is designed to strengthen the math and science skills of participating students. Program services include: summer programs with intensive math and science training; year-round advisement; exposure to research in mathematics and the sciences; computer training; and participant-conducted scientific research under the guidance of LNESC staff members.

The LNESC/LULAC Upward Bound Program provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. During the academic year participants attend academic advising and after school tutoring.


Both programs are designed for high school students from low-income and/or first-generation families (neither parent holds a bachelor’s degree) and other disconnected youth.
