College Tours:(click here to look at possible colleges around the country)
We take pride in offering our participants the unique opportunity to visit premiere institutions. Students tour campuses and visit with faculty and students to learn about their institution. This gives students a chance to get a “feel” for the type of college they would be most comfortable attending.

Each year students tour various colleges and universities. Along the way, students are given a chance to visit museums, cultural festivals, and educational/historical sites. Students have toured colleges in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Illinois, and of course Montana.

Stipends:
How would you like to earn up to $90 during the summer? A participant in UB is eligible to receive a summer stipends up to $90 for involvement in the Summer Institute.

TRiO Tuesdays:
Each semester there are a number of Tuesday evening sessions provided to help students with academics, prepare for the ACT/SAT college placement test, or to gather for a social/cultural activity.

College Application and Selection:  
Each student is guided through the confusing maze of how to select a college/university. Topics addressed are: how to write a college entrance essay; what criteria to use to select a school; how to complete the application process; and, how to develop the skills needed to survive in college. UB pays for one college application fee per student.

Scholastic Advising:  
Our staff works with  high school counselors  to help plan the academic future of each participant.

Bridge Program:  
Once a student has completed their senior year, they will be eligible for the Summer Bridge Program. During the summer, bridge students live on campus and take college classes. Once they successfully complete the Summer Bridge Program, students will have earned six college credits. Tuition, fees and books are paid by the UB project.
