Our Give $100, Get $100 feature allows students to earn money from colleges just by sharing RaiseMe with other students.
How do I earn this micro-scholarship?
1. Log in and click the +$100 button on the top bar of your Portfolio.
2. Here you can enter emails of your friends to send invites, or copy your unique link and send it via whatever channel you'd like - Facebook, text, Instagram, whatever!
3. When someone signs up from your invite/link and adds at least one achievement like classes and extracurriculars to their portfolio, you'll both get $100!
4. Be sure to Follow at least one college offering the micro-scholarships (see below, "Which college will award...")
Where does the money come from?
The money is an additional micro-scholarship - colleges are willing to award you scholarship dollars for helping your friends! Like all micro-scholarships on our site, the money does not come from RaiseMe. It doesn't come from other students or from your teachers, either.
Which colleges will award micro-scholarships for sharing RaiseMe with friends?
100+ college partners offer this micro-scholarship, most with a maximum of $1,000 - which means you'll need 10 friends to sign up with your link to earn the maximum amount.
To see which colleges offer this micro-scholarship, go to the Scholarships tab, scroll to the bottom, and click on "Refer-a-friend."
I invited people, but I'm not seeing the micro-scholarships. What's happening?
Make sure people have actually signed up from your referral! It's not enough to just invite them or for them to sign-up on their own because you told them about it. They need to go through the email or click your link and sign up.
Make sure you are Following at least one college who offers this micro-scholarship (check on this page to find those colleges!) and are eligible for their micro-scholarships. That means you'll need to actually fill out your Portfolio to have the right GPA and credits to be eligible.
As with all Micro-Scholarships, once the earnings deadline passes, RaiseMe is not able to submit any more information to the college. They set their deadlines for specific reasons, usually related to how they allocate funds, and we're not able to adjust those or make exceptions.
I told someone about RaiseMe and they signed up, but this was before I knew about the $100 deal. Can we still get the money?
No, unfortunately if they have signed up already, neither of you can receive the $100 for that sign-up. However, you can both go ahead and invite more friends who are not yet on the site!
