RISE UP/GEAR UP
Our Toppenish/Yakima Valley GEAR UP office is creating a series of Financial Aid training tweets on Twitter. This is a part of the College Media Access Initiative, pushing information to our 13 GEAR UP high schools in the Yakima, Skagit and Klickitat valleys.
Each of our GEAR UP high schools has installed large “smart monitors” in various locations which are programmed to stream Twitter feeds, including @UWGEARUP. Each day, the GEAR UP offices sends several financial aid tips and information regarding scholarships, goal-setting, the FAFSA, the WASFA, dual credit and other resources available to high school students, to get them in the know about the financial track to college.
Follow us on Twitter to automatically receive Financial Aid tips.
