High School and Community College Students
As of right now, students who are in grades 9, 10, 11, or 12 and attend high school in the United States can sign up to earn scholarships on RaiseMe. If students are at a school in Puerto Rico or on US soil overseas (like an Army base) then they are eligible for RaiseMe. Please note, 12th graders can use the site earlier in the school year, but our college partners set a specific earnings deadline, which can be as early as August or as late as April. 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.
RaiseMe also supports community college students who intend to transfer to a four-year institution. For more information on our transfer program, please check out www.raise.me/transfer
Home School Students
Yes, homeschool students can use RaiseMe! Just note the following for when they're signing up:
When signing up, it asks for their high school, they can enter in "Home School" and they'll see the homeschool option pop up. If you can't find it, try typing "1 Your Street."
What if you're part of a larger homeschool system, and we have a specific name? If you're part of a larger school, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the website, address, and phone number, and we can add the school to our system before you sign-up.
