Let’s Celebrate National GEAR UP Week!
September 10-14, 2012
GEAR UP programs all over the country are celebrating their students! This is an opportunity to showcase GEAR UP in your community and highlight its positive impact on students, parents, teachers, and schools.
GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) is a discretionary grant program funded by the U.S. Department of Education and administered by New Jersey Higher Education. Its goal is to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education.
