LA GEAR UP REWARDS FOR SUCCESS
Every year LA GEAR UP students compete for $200,000 in Rewards for Success (RFS) scholarships. Students can literally earn money for college while still in high school! Awards of $1,000, $500 and $250 are awarded to selected student members of the LA GEAR UP cohort from the graduating classes of 2014 and 2015. All you have to do is (1) go to school every day, (2) stay out of trouble, (3) work hard in your classes, (4) get involved in your school and community, and (5) take your standardized tests seriously. But wait...you're already doing all that, right? Why not start earning money for your college education?!

Once on Louisiana Connect, you can connect to various colleges/universities, prospective employees and sign up for LA GEAR UP Summer Transition Camps (see more information below).
