Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP)

GEAR UP is designed to increase the number of low-income students prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education by providing grants to partnerships of local education agencies and institutions of higher education. GEAR UP provides funding for academic support services for low-income students, including students with disabilities, to enable them to obtain a secondary school diploma and to prepare for and succeed in postsecondary education.
