Never Too Early For Scholarships!

Start immediately earning scholarship money for your high achievements through micro-scholarships like Raise.me

Students can automatically earn scholarships from colleges for entering information on their completed goals inside and outside of the classroom (grades, part time jobs, volunteer hours, extracurricular, etc.) Ask the Guidance Department for instructions on how to create a "raise.me" account. You should sign up your junior year! Once you create an account, make sure to follow your school of interest and check their requirements prior to the deadline!
