Frostburg State University will host the 2012 Regional Math Science Center, an Upward Bound Math Science program that offers free educational opportunities to students in grades eight through ten. The goal of the program is to stimulate and assist students to reach their full potential in order to be successful in college math and science courses. The RMSC is federally funded through the U.S. Department of Education.
Students can apply to the program during their either their eighth, ninth, or tenth grade years of school. In order to be considered for acceptance, students must reside within the program’s target areas in Maryland, meet the federal income guidelines, and/or be potential first-generation college students. The program also requires juniors to take the PSAT to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship programs. Juniors should check with their school counselors for registration dates and details.
During the academic year, the RMSC provides academic support and monitors students’ progress. This fall, junior and senior participants will have the opportunity to visit several college campuses. However, in order to attend RMSC trips, students must meet the following program requirements: contact RMSC office monthly to update staff on classes; complete all RMSC assignments; maintain a GPA above 2.5 with no “D” or “F” grades.
