MASP’s Bound Programs are a year-long experience for motivated first year students who are first generation college students and/or members of historically excluded communities. Students will have the opportunity to learn about and connect to opportunities in their area (and related areas) of interest and build a strong and inclusive community with students who have similar academic interests. There are three Bound Programs, one for each of the divisions in Arts & Sciences: Arts & Humanities Bound , Science Bound , and Social Science Bound (see below for a list of majors included in each).  


Each Bound program includes: 

  • Pre-Orientation

  • Success Seminar (1 credit hour in Fall) 

  • Weekend Experience

  • Symposium (1 credit hour in Spring) 

  • MASP Community & Resources (community and study spaces, community events, peer-to-peer mentoring, faculty mentoring, and free printing) 

Students who are accepted and participate in the Bound Programs will receive a $2000 participation stipend, $1000 in Fall 2024 and $1000 Spring 2025.
