The On the Move scholarships will offer $2,000 a year, or $8,000 over four years, for GEAR UP students entering Plymouth State in 2022–2024. They are available to all students in the Alliance’s GEAR UP New Hampshire and GEAR UP Manchester cohorts.
Participating students who apply and are accepted to Plymouth State will be eligible to receive $2,000 a year toward tuition and other college expenses. These funds will supplement $7 million in scholarships awarded through the Alliance’s GEAR UP New Hampshire grant.
“Supporting GEAR UP students with this scholarship was an obvious choice for Plymouth State. We always strive to make college more accessible and affordable for New Hampshire residents,” notes Matt Wallace, the university’s Director of Admissions. “We are proud of our partnership with GEAR UP and hope this financial assistance will open the door for more New Hampshire high school graduates to pursue a college education!”
