RaiseMe is a platform that helps 9-12th grade students, community college students, and college students (intending to transfer to another 4 year institution) prepare for college by earning scholarships for their achievements in school. Over 250+ colleges and universities have partnered with RaiseMe, and award micro-scholarships for both academics and extracurricular activities.

How does it work?

Students create a portfolio and select 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 shows 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.

Check out the rest of our Help Center to learn more about how to get started and how RaiseMe works!

What is a Micro-Scholarship?

A micro-scholarship is an amount of money that students are eligible to earn based on individual achievements throughout 9th-12th grade, community college, or college (for college students looking to transfer to another 4 year institution). They are awarded by colleges and universities who partner with RaiseMe, and each college or university creates their own micro-scholarship program. The amount earned via RaiseMe represents the minimum amount of institutional aid that the college will award you if you are accepted and enroll in their school.

Colleges decide what achievements they want to award and how much they will award to students who meet their eligibility requirements (which can be found on their College page). For example, one college might offer $50 for an A in Algebra, another might offer $300, and so on.

Does the scholarship money come from RaiseMe?

No - micro-scholarship dollars are awarded by the college partner. All eligibility requirements and deadlines must be met in order for the dollars to be awarded, and they are awarded in the financial aid package before the student's freshman year begins or before the student transfers.

How many micro-scholarships are earned with each achievement?

Each college can choose which achievements to award money for, and how much. For example, if you get an A in an English class, one college might award $500, another could award $1,000, and another, $50 - all for the same grade.

Can I earn from colleges at the same time?

Yes, you can earn from multiple colleges at once by Following all the ones you're interested in. However, you'll only receive the scholarship funds from a school if you are accepted and attend that college.

What's the largest amount I can earn?

Colleges can set maximums on earnings for students via RaiseMe. It could be $5,000 at one college, and $50,000 at another college. 

If I earn micro-scholarships, can I still earn additional financial aid from that college?

Of course! RaiseMe automatically submits your Portfolio to colleges you're Following on their earning deadlines, assuming your profile is complete (See: Eligibility Requirements). 

The amount you earn on RaiseMe is the minimum amount that the college will award you if you enroll in their school. However, the college can always decide to award you more scholarships based on merit or need once they see your application for admission. 

Here are some commonly asked questions about how micro-scholarships are awarded to students.

Is this money delivered to my bank account? Is it cash?

The money on RaiseMe represents scholarship dollars from colleges and is applied as a traditional college scholarship would be - as a discount on your tuition when you enroll. There is no cash from RaiseMe or from any of our college partners.

I'm seeing earnings for colleges start to add up - when can I get it?

As long as you are submitted to that college partner in your senior year, scholarships are awarded in your financial aid package if you apply, are accepted to, and enroll at one of those colleges. Be absolutely sure to complete your Portfolio so you are submitted to the college.

I've been submitted. Now what? When do I get the money?

If you haven't already, you need to apply and be accepted to the college, then enroll. 

The college will reference RaiseMe when determining financial aid for you, and as long as all requirements have been met, you'll be awarded at least the amount earned on RaiseMe in scholarships, grants, etc.

Note that RaiseMe may not be mentioned on the award letter! For example, you might have earned $2,000 from a college each year on RaiseMe, and end up receiving $4,000 total. Those scholarships will come from different funds and it's very likely they will not say "RaiseMe" on them, but as long as the college provides at least the dollars promised on RaiseMe, they've met their obligation and all is well. If you aren't given the amount promised, you should contact either us or the college's financial aid office.

Can I use the scholarship money to pay for books?

The Micro-Scholarship dollars are awarded by the college/university in your financial aid package, and questions about how to receive those funds can be directed to the college itself. It's standard for the scholarship to be applied directly to tuition as a discount, not awarded in cash form for books or other supplies.

Can I use the scholarships I earn from one school for another school of my choice?

Micro-Scholarships are not transferable between different colleges, because they are awarded by the school itself, not by RaiseMe.

How will the scholarship be applied if I'm attending community college for the first 2 years and then transferring?

When you view a university's page on RaiseMe that you're Following, you'll see the total amount earned and the yearly amount you'll receive from the university if you are accepted, enroll, and meet all requirements via RaiseMe. The total amount earned is awarded over a four-year traditional graduation period while attending the university. 

If you attend a community college for two years before attending the four-year university, you'll likely need to reapply as a transfer student and be reevaluated for financial aid. You may discuss with the college's financial aid office their requirements for transferring these scholarships. Some of our high school college partners are also RaiseMe transfer partners! As a college student you can signup for our transfer platform and earn micro-scholarships to participating transfer partners. 

Can I take a gap year?

If you are taking a year off after high school and then are applying to college, RaiseMe is not an option for you to earn micro-scholarships ahead of time, because you are technically no longer a high schooler at the time of your submission.

If you are planning to apply to college, be accepted, then defer by a year, and you are completing RaiseMe as a high school senior, please contact the financial aid department at the college, as they may allow you to still qualify for micro-scholarships.
