Community College Students Now Eligible for Micro-scholarships

Raise.me, a performance-based scholarship platform that helps high school students raise funding for college, is now open to community college students interested in transferring to four-year institutions.

The platform rewards good students as early as 9th grade with “micro-scholarships” from more than 265 colleges partnered with Raise.me. Students can also use Raise.me to discover best-fit colleges and universities, gaining insights into financial costs, transfer processes and other institutional data. More than 800,000 high school students so far have used Raise.me to help achieve their postsecondary education goals.

As announced at the National Association of College Admissions Counseling annual conference, “community college students on RaiseMe will be able to earn scholarships incrementally for their academic and extracurricular progress during their time at two-year community college institutions," a company statement said. "Additionally, partnering four-year institutions on RaiseMe will have the opportunity to provide degree pathways for community college transfer candidates, helping guide students toward successful baccalaureate degree completion.”

Arizona State University, a Raise.me partner, has allocated its resources to ensure that all community college students within the state of Arizona have an affordable path to a four-year degree, according to Matt Lopez, executive director of admissions services at the institution. “RaiseMe’s streamlined online platform and innovative method of distributing scholarships has made it a clear solution to help us fulfill our mission, both for tens of thousands of high school students and now for a new crop of community college transfers,” Lopez said.
