MIT/Wellesley Upward Bound Program

Project Description

The MIT/Wellesley Upward Bound Program is a year-round (from time of entrance until graduation from high school), educational program serving fifty (50) low-income and/or first generation* high school students who live in Cambridge and attend Cambridge Rindge and Latin School (CRLS). The Program stresses the development of academic skills and motivation for students who might not traditionally be considered college-bound. Rising ninth grade through tenth grade students may apply. During the school year, academic tutoring and counseling services are available at our MIT office. College undergraduates tutor students during afternoon and evening study sessions.The summer session consists of six weeks of rigorous academic study in a residential setting on the Wellesley College campus.
