WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING:
"I found RaiseMe helpful because I really didn't have any direction towards schools and the cost was a huge concern going into it. RaiseMe opened my eyes to schools that are willing to give back to their students and that was very important to me."
Wynn P., Earned $54,000 from Susquehanna University
“RaiseMe was cleanly designed, easy to understand, and very rewarding right from the start. What I loved most about it was the fact that you could start earning micro-scholarships right away by simply entering in your grades and achievements.”
Jacob N., Earned a Full Tuition Scholarship from University of Toronto
“Raise me helped get me into a financial comfort zone that [allowed me to] focus on my studies and not worry constantly about how I’d be paying for school.”
Sean V., Earned $10,000 from Florida International University

Ratings and Reviews
This app is truly amazing and very beneficial to earn money from colleges, as well as learn about different colleges in general. I just started yesterday and have already earned thousands from multiple colleges. I highly recommend using it. With that said, there are a few things that I think could be worked on. First, it would be amazing if more prestigious colleges were added and offered micro scholarships( and just more in general). But i know that is difficult. Also i think it would be nice if the grade scale went above a 100 because my school gives extra points to final semester grades for honors and AP classes. Because of this i have over a hundred on my report card for several classes. Also, the app does not let you add jobs that you still work at currently. But otherwise this app is amazing and helps you learn about colleges, while earning money from them.
Hey there, thank you so much and welcome to RaiseMe! We're adding new partner colleges all the time, so be sure to Follow all the colleges you're interested in, even if they don't yet offer scholarships on RaiseMe. That way, you'll be notified if they join RaiseMe later on.
As for your question around GPA, RaiseMe calculates your GPA using unweighted grades in core classes (so that means the maximum is a 4.0). Don't worry, though - colleges can see advanced courses on RaiseMe and often award more micro-scholarships for them. When you're entering your classes, be sure to note whether they're AP/IB, honors, or advanced courses - you may be eligible for more micro-scholarships on top of what you get for good grades!
We're so glad you're using RaiseMe, and if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com.
Wish more colleges were involved
I’ve seen a lot of reviews and developer responses about this already, so I’ll just note that most of the more prestigious or elite colleges haven’t started participating as a warning to future people who start using RaiseMe who might be more ambitious like I am. Other than that, this is a pretty user friendly app; I very recently started using it and have had only minor problems thus far.
One problem I have encountered that is also minor but more annoying than the rest is the lack of customizable filters. I don’t want to comb through over a thousand colleges when my search could’ve been narrowed down by something like a button in a settings page that says “Set minimum average salary:_____” I understand it may be more difficult than I realize, but I still wish we could customize the filters by salary, debt, or popular majors even just a little.
Other than that, it is great and you should use it.
Hey there, glad you're enjoying the app! As you might've seen, we're adding new partner colleges all the time. Be sure to Follow schools you're interested in, even if they don't offer scholarships on RaiseMe yet, so that you'll get alerts if they do join RaiseMe in the future.
This app is very useful for high school students! I use it once every quarter of my school year is completed. As much as I would love to give this 4 stars, my only issue with this app is the GPA. In certain schools, such as the one I attend, they count every class you take throughout the year and add it onto your GPA, including arts and physical education. By RaiseMe calculating just the core classes for our GPA, it gives its users inaccurate earnings for the colleges they’ve followed. Our GPA should be completely accurate to what we have in school to make our future college experience better.
Hey there! RaiseMe calculates your unweighted GPA based on core courses entered (Math, Science, English, Social Studies, and Foreign Language) which is measured on a scale of 0 to 4.0. If your school calculates GPA on a weighted scale 0 to 5.0, your GPA may appear lower on RaiseMe.
We do this to standardize across hundreds of thousands of students - for example, your school counts PE and art towards your GPA, but other schools might not. Colleges often calculate a student's unweighted GPA using core classes when determining scholarship awards, so we do the same in order to appropriately reflect what a student will get from a specific college if they are accepted.
Remember: your earnings on RaiseMe represent the minimum amount you'll get for your grades and activities - colleges may award more! Colleges will still see your transcript's GPA when you apply. They'll also see any advanced courses you add to your RaiseMe Portfolio, and often award more micro-scholarships for them.
