Welcome to GEAR UP Wyoming!

Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) is a federally-funded, statewide grant in Wyoming that provides services to 2,000 7th-12th grade, income-eligible students each year.

The goal of GEAR UP is to increase the number of eligible students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education by:
  • providing academic support, college preparation, and family services through GEAR UP offices located in each of the seven community colleges in Wyoming
  • providing educator training and school improvement initiatives.

GEAR UP Wyoming is funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education totaling $3,548,876 annually with an additional $3,548,876 annually provided by in-kind and scholarship contributions.
