FREE SCHOLARSHIP MONEY FOR 9TH-12TH GRADE STUDENTS!
Hello 9th-12th Grade Students!
What if you could earn scholarship money from colleges every time you got a good grade in high school? What if you could also earn money for playing sports, participating in school clubs, being a leader, volunteering in the community, and more?
RaiseMe is a platform that helps 9th-12th grade students earn scholarships for their achievements in high school. Over 250 colleges and universities have partnered with RaiseMe, and award scholarships for activities such as grades, club or sports participation, even college visits. Partner colleges assign a potential dollar amount to certain achievements. For example, one college may offer $100 for an A, and another may offer $1000. RaiseMe shows you the minimum amount you’d be guaranteed in scholarships from a college if you are accepted to that school. This is free money for things you are already doing!
Email me or stop by my classroom (3B) if you have questions or need any help.
