What is GEAR UP TN?

  • Gaining Early Awareness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP), a seven-year discretionary grant program, aims to increase the number of low-income, first generation Tennessee students who graduate from high school and enroll in college.

    Fayetteville City's GEAR UP TN project will provide direct services to a cohort of the Class of 2023, beginning in the 8th grade and continuing through the cohort’s first year of postsecondary education. Each year, GEAR UP TN will also provide assistance to seniors with college-enrollment and financial aid processes.
