mspmentor.net

Kentucky schools will learn today whether they have been selected to participate in a new, almost 27 million dollar college-readiness grant program. Known as GEAR UP, or Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs, the federal grant expects to serve 10,000 Kentucky students from low-incomes schools over six years. The goal is to increase the number of students who finish high school and continue their education. The recipient schools will be announced later this morning.
