The GEAR UP Alabama program is coordinated by the University of Alabama at Birmingham and funded by the U. S. Department of Education.  Over the next seven years, 50 Alabama schools will participate in the effort. 

GEAR UP will offer students the chance to participate in free college tours, academic workshops, tutoring, leadership development classes, career development activities, mentoring, financial aid workshops and college preparation summer academies.  GEAR UP also will offer college-planning and financial literacy workshops for parents, and provide training programs for teachers.
