High School Seniors


The high school program requirements include:

  • Weekly meetings with Science Bound teachers
  • Visits to Iowa State University
  • Maintaining a grade point average of 3.0 or higher
  • Presenting a successful oral justification yearly
  • Participating in a summer academic career experience

During the senior year, students and families participate in Countdown to College. 

Countdown to College (C2C) was developed to help scholars and their families make the transition from high school to college. This program steps families through the process, in addition to bringing many of Iowa State’s resources directly to them. C2C is a requirement for all senior Science Bound scholars.

Please contact the Science Bound offices at 515-669-0667 or via email for meeting information.
