RaiseMe is a social enterprise focused on expanding access to higher education, especially among low income and first generation students. Rather than waiting until the end of high school to earn scholarships, which is often too late to impact a student's college ambitions or choices, RaiseMe enables students to earn scholarships throughout high school, starting as early as 9th grade, for doing all the things that best prepare them to succeed, whether that’s getting good grades, volunteering in the community or joining an extracurricular.
Over a million students - representing 3 out of 4 high schools in America - have signed up to earn 'micro-scholarships' from a diverse set of over 300 colleges and universities, including Northeastern, Colby, Penn State, Michigan State, Tulane and Rollins College. At RaiseMe, we're focused every day on making sure every student has the opportunity to achieve their college ambitions and go as far as their skills and smarts will take them.
