RaiseMe Scholarships helps students in 9th - 12th grades to discover colleges and earn scholarships for their academic and extracurricular achievements throughout high school.  

  • These bite-sized scholarships are called “Micro-Scholarships”.
  • When students add achievements to their Portfolio on, they could be eligible to earn Micro-Scholarships towards our partner colleges.
  • These achievements can include good grades, participating in clubs, playing on a sports team, volunteering, or even starting a club.  They can include AP or IB courses, honors classes, and college-level courses, too. 

The Micro-Scholarships students can earn on Raise.Me vary depending on what each college chooses to offer.  

  • Some Micro-Scholarships can range from anywhere between  $500 to over $1,000 dollars.
  • For example, if a student gets an A in an English class, he or she could be eligible to receive scholarships from dozens of colleges on Raise. Me.

Students create a portfolio and follow colleges they’re interested in attending. As they add achievements to their portfolio - grades, club or sports participation, even college visits - they can see the micro-scholarships add up.

Partner colleges assign a potential dollar amount to certain achievements, which show students how much they’d be guaranteed in scholarships if they are accepted to that school. 

  • For example, one college may offer $100 for an A, and another may offer $500. 
  • As long as students meet the college’s eligibility requirements and any deadlines, and are accepted to the university, they can count on at least that much in scholarship awards on a per year basis.

Yes, these scholarships are real! Requirements must be met and students must provide true information on their Portfolio. 

The scholarship dollars come from the colleges, not RaiseMe.

RaiseMe gives students the chance to earn those scholarships before they apply, rather than finding out later on, and they can see exactly what they are being awarded for.

Any 9th-12th grade student can sign up and complete a profile, but in order to guarantee the scholarship dollars:

  • The student must be Following the college when their earning deadline arrives, and meet all eligibility requirements for the college by that date.
  • The student must be accepted to the college and decide to attend.
