Raise Me- Montclair asked us to reach out to you to share some helpful resources for introducing Raise.me to your students. Montclair is a social enterprise working in partnership with the White House and over 180 colleges to expand access to higher education by improving the way students prepare for college—both financially and academically. Rather than waiting until the end of high school to award aid, which is often too late to impact a student’s college ambitions or choices, Raise.me enables students to earn grant aid throughout high school, starting as early as 9th grade, for doing all the things that best prepare them to succeed, whether that’s getting good grades, volunteering in the community or joining an extracurricular. The amount that students earn from a college on Raise.me represents a guaranteed minimum amount of aid they’ll receive if they apply and are admitted to that college.
Through Raise.me your students can now earn “micro-scholarships” (performance-based scholarships) from Montclair and over 180 other colleges (including Texas Tech, the University of Dayton, and Stetson) for each of their academic and extracurricular achievements beginning as freshmen. Other counselors are using this free program to motivate students, improve outcomes, and reinforce the guidance they’re already giving. Raise.me can help your students get a head start on their college search and develop into stronger applicants.
