Summer Institute

The Summer Institute is a vital part of the Rutgers Upward Bound & Upward Bound Math-Science experience. It is a six-week intensive on-campus program, which all Upward Bound Scholars are expected to attend. It generally begins at the end of June and concludes in early August. During this time, participants utilize the Rutgers University New Brunswick-Piscataway campus and return home on evenings and weekends. Students are required to participate in some weekend activities.

The Summer Institute aims to create a college-like academic environment that encourages participants to develop autonomy, academic responsibility, and expand their knowledge of their own scholastic competencies in preparation for college.
