Find a clearer path to college, earlier!

Earn micro‑scholarships from colleges for your achievements as early as 9th grade! 

Whether you’re in the initial stages of discovering colleges as a high school freshman or sophomore, forming your list of colleges to apply for as a high school junior, or getting ready to head to college in the fall as a graduating senior, the question of how financial aid can help pay for college is one of the biggest questions a high school student will ever face.

Many free resources are available to help high school students understand how financial aid works, ranging from the college advising center on campus, to the U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid website, to RaiseMe, where students can earn micro-scholarships directly from colleges for academic and extracurricular achievements. Click here to read about: How RaiseMe micro-scholarships factor into financial aid awards from colleges.
