"I found Raise.me helpful because I really didn't have any direction towards schools and the cost was a huge concern going into it. Raise.me opened my eyes to schools that are willing to give back to their students and that was very important to me."
"Raise.me is one of the easiest and most helpful scholarship opportunities someone can apply for. […] All students have to do is enter their information and get awarded for their hard work. Raise.me is the reason I don't have to stress to cough up money for college. I appreciate them everyday and I hope every high school student takes the time to apply and be rewarded. Thank you, Raise.me!"
"Raise.me motivated me throughout high school by allowing me to visualize the amount of financial aid that I was eligible to receive for my various accomplishments. I was eager to raise that amount as the years progressed. By incorporating myself in the activities I already enjoyed such as basketball, A.P. courses and extracurricular clubs, it was easy to be rewarded. […] It's organizations like Raise.me that inspire the young minds of my generation to do their best."
Abby Saxastar raised $80,000 on Raise.me, which will fully cover her tuition at Stetson University, a private college in central Florida. "I've always been very successful in school and I've also done a lot of volunteer work," said Saxastar. "But I still had to figure out how to pay for college."
By highlighting and rewarding certain academic and extracurricular activities, Raise.me helps level the college playing — and paying — field for low-income students who may not receive the same kind of parental advice at home as their higher-income peers.
With its new "family assistance scholarships," Raise.me is hoping to enable a growing movement among selective colleges to recognize contributions by low-income students — those who are often shut out of the traditional college admissions horserace because of family obligations and limited opportunities.
