Scholarship Central

Scholarship Central and GEAR UP staff is still actively working as we understand this is a critical time for students pursuing a postsecondary education. Students are encouraged to set up regular appointments for consistent assistance for any of their college and career needs.

To serve you and your family in the safest way as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control to contain the spread of COVID-19, all student appointments and programs will be held virtually until further notice. Please check our social media pages for Scholarship Central Access program for information and resources for current high school and college students. This situation is evolving so please check often.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of uncertainty and constant change.
