GEAR-UP: Gaining Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs
This program offers six-year matching grants to states and partnerships that provide funding for early intervention programs designed to increase college attendance and success.
Funds may be used for coursework to reduce the need for remediation at the postsecondary level, summer bridge programs, and activities that improve the number of students applying to and enrolling in postsecondary education.
