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

Are These Real Scholarships?
Yes! We are partnering with RaiseMe to allow you to earn scholarships to the University of Montana earlier in high school and help you see how you can be a competitive candidate at UM.
When UM awards students scholarships on RaiseMe, we are guaranteeing these scholarships will be included in your financial aid package after you are admitted.

Can I Use The Scholarships I Earn From The University of Montana Program to Pay The Cost of Attending Another School?
