The University of California announced that it has received a seven-year grant to continue administering a federally funded academic preparation program that improves educational outcomes for low-income students in under-resourced California middle schools.

The seven-year, $24.5 million grant for GEAR UP, which stands for Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs, represents the fourth such U.S. Department of Education grant awarded to California since GEAR UP’s inception in 1999, and will ensure that the program is funded through 2024.
