Evaluation of Upward Bound (UB) Program
The government requires a contractor to conduct a 5 year study to evaluate the impact of the federally funded Upward Bound Program (UB) on college entry, persistence and graduation. Several key tasks described here are largely extensions of work focused on short-term high school effects of program participation. This evaluation will address four main questions, 1) what are the effects of Upward Bound on college enrollments, persistence and graduation; 2) what Upward Bound program experience and project strategies are most effective; 3) does the Upward Bound Math-Science (UBMS) program increase the likelihood that participants enrolled in college will graduate as math or science majors; and 4) what is the ratio between Upward Bound costs and benefits?
