Michigan GEAR UP Program
Michigan has built a strong infrastructure and capacity to provide GEAR UP services through a statewide coalition of its 15 public universities. The Michigan GEAR UP Program provides student participants in the state with support services to increase opportunities to succeed in higher education at post-secondary institutions. It's mission is to provide an opportunity for students to discover, first-hand, the potential of a college education and to expose students to the information, knowledge, and skills they need to prepare themselves adequately for college entry and success.
Michigan GEAR UP is a state partnership grant funded by the the U.S. Department of Education and the State of Michigan's Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO) King/Chavez/Parks College Day Program.
