RaiseMe Micro-Scholarships

RaiseMe is an organization committed to making scholarships more transparent, predictable, and motivational for students and their families. Through the RaiseMe website, students in grades 9-12 can earn “micro-scholarships” (small scholarships tied to specific achievements) toward college as they progress through high school.

Through UM's partnership with RaiseMe students can accumulate awards for use at UM for:

  • Getting an A in a course
  • Maintaining a high GPA
  • Taking the PSAT or ACT Plan
  • Taking an AP or IP class
  • Scoring well on the SAT or ACT
  • Participating in extracurricular activities
  • Attending a college fair
  • Visiting UM
  • Other activities detailed on the RaiseMe site
