At this time, only students who attend high school in the United States can sign up to earn scholarships on Raise.me.
I'm an international student at a high school in the United States
During signup, you'll be asked if you are a US citizen or permanent resident. It's important to answer this question, because some scholarships are only available to US citizens, and others are available to only international students. Most colleges offer the same micro-scholarships regardless of status!
If you didn't fill out this information during signup, go to your Account Settings to update it!
Raise.me cannot support classes or activities taken outside the US, but you can enter any/all information from your current high school.
I'm a DACA student
DACA students can sign up and earn on Raise.me, but each college has different policies around citizenship and who can earn scholarships towards their school. Go into your Account Settings and make sure your citizenship status is right. Then, the Raise.me portal will then only show you earnings for the colleges where you qualify for aid.
I don't live in the United States
If you are at school in Puerto Rico or on US soil overseas (like an Army base) then you are eligible for Raise.me.
Raise.me does not currently support students who are graduating from non-US schools.
I took classes outside of the US but I'm graduating from a US high school
If your classes taken outside the US are going to appear on your transcript when you graduate from a US school, you may enter those courses in your Portfolio.
Does Raise.me partner with international colleges?
Yes! Raise.me has international partners in the UK and Canada, though that doesn't impact the eligibility of prospective students, who still need to be graduating from school in the US in order to use Raise.me.
Still not sure if you're eligible?
