Build Your Own Scholarship!
Through a new program called RaiseMe, students can guarantee scholarships from 250+ colleges as early as 9th grade, making it easier to plan financially for school.
RaiseMe has proven to be a great tool to motivate students in high schools throughout the U.S. As an example: • Get an A in a course ($100 - $1,000) • Get a B in a course ($50-$600) • Participate in a school club or sport ($25 - $250) • And much more!
The program was launched with the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and U.S. colleges.
Here are a couple of easy ways to support your students in using this unique tool: 1) Ensure that your student creates an account at www.raise.me. 2) Encourage your student to regularly add good grades, community service, extracurricular activities, and other achievements to his or her RaiseMe Portfolio to earn micro-scholarships from colleges. 3) Visit www.raise.me/parents for more information. We hope using RaiseMe will make your student’s path to college both more fun and affordable.
