RaiseMe

RaiseMe is a micro-scholarship program for high school students. Students can earn scholarships 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.

To help you envision your progress toward Lane College scholarships, we have allotted dollar amounts to conventional high school achievements and college prep activities. Use RaiseMe to register your accomplishments and see how they are adding up to potential Lane College scholarships by visiting [www.raise.me/join/lane-college]www.raise.me/join/lane-college and entering in their profile information and following Lane College.

Are these real scholarships?

Who's eligible to earn micro-scholarships?
Lane College's RaiseMe scholarships are available for incoming freshman. They are not available for international, online-only, part-time, transfer or returning Lane College students.

How do I get started?You begin by creating an account on RaiseMe. Once your account is established, you should follow Lane College and add achievements such as grades, extracurricular activities and leadership positions to your portfolio.

How do I receive these scholarships from Lane College?
You must follow Lane College and complete your profile on RaiseMe by March 1 of your senior year.I'm in 10th, 11th, or 12th grade. Can I get scholarship money for things I achieved earlier in high school?Yes! You can fill in your high school portfolio retroactively with achievements going back to the beginning of 9th grade, and will be eligible to earn scholarships as if you have been using RaiseMe since 9th grade. The more accomplished your portfolio is, the more possibilities you have to earn micro-scholarships.

How often should I add achievements to my portfolio?
You should add accomplishments as frequently as you can throughout high school. Adding accomplishments to your portfolio increases your eligibility for earning scholarships from Lane College.

Can I use the scholarships I earn from the Lane College program to pay the cost of attending another school?No. Micro-scholarships are not transferrable between different colleges. You can only use the scholarships that you earn from one school towards the cost of attending that same college - not to any other school.

Which courses should I add to my portfolio?
You should add all of your courses from grades 9 through 12 in order for Lane College to award you the correct amount in scholarships.
