Join Upward Bound Math Science at NAU!
From August through December, Upward Bound Math Science staff actively recruit students in ninth and tenth grades. After the active recruitment period, ninth and tenth grade students can submit an application at any time to be considered for program admission the following year or to be placed on a waiting list. Before a student applies to the program, they should ensure their eligibility.
To participate and receive services, a student must meet the following criteria:
- Be a “potential first-generation college student” (that is, parents do not have a four year college degree) AND/OR
- Classified as low-income (as defined by federal government)
- Be a freshman or sophomore high school student
- Have a 3.0 grade point average (GPA)
- Attending one of the following “target” schools:
- Coconino High School in Flagstaff, Arizona
- Holbrook High School in Holbrook, Arizona
- Many Farms High School in Many Farms, Arizona
- Monument Valley High School in Kayenta, Arizona
- Tuba City High School in Tuba City, Arizona
All eligible students are invited to apply to the Upward Bound Math Science Program
Admission to the program is based on eligibility, student grades, teacher recommendations, and a written essay from the student. Preference is given to those students with an interest in post-secondary success. Students who are admitted into the program as freshman and sophomores have the opportunity to participate for two to three years, until high school graduation. Annually, there are approximately 20-25 positions to be filled due to spaces vacated by graduating seniors.
