COVID-19 GEAR UP Iowa Resources

Over the past few weeks, the outbreak of COVID-19 has caused school districts in Iowa to shut down for an extended period of time. This situation has forced us to rethink how we interact and engage with the people around us. With this in mind, GEAR UP Iowa is offering virtual opportunities to engage our students across the state in FAFSA completion and with general college advice. We maintain our commitment to support our GEAR UP students, families, and communities. We are here for you!
