Gaining Early Awareness & Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) New Mexico is a seven-year initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Education in 17 states across the country.
GEAR UP New Mexico, a division of the New Mexico Higher Education Department, is at work in 11 school districts in our state.
Our goal is to increase the number of students going to post-secondary schools, enhance the college-going culture in those communities, and to improve access and opportunities within state colleges and universities for all students.
