Micro-Scholarship Platform Reinventing Financial Aid

RaiseMe is reinventing educational pathways and changing the way students access billions of dollars each year in financial aid for college. Rather than waiting until the end of high school to award financial aid, Raise.me enables students to automatically earn “Micro-Scholarships” throughout high school based on their individual achievements in and outside of the classroom.

With over $1 billion in Micro-Scholarships that have already been made available by colleges, universities, and other sponsors across the US, Raise.me’s platform is bringing together experienced educators & technology professionals to reinvent financial aid and help close the achievement gap. Raise.me now has over 18,000 high schools with students on the platform and 260+ college partners including ASU, Penn State, Oberlin, Michigan State, NYU, and Carnegie Mellon.
