Best app 5/5

This app is so helpful and very easy.
Great App 5/5
RaiseMe is a great and reliable way to earn scholarships! I recommend for all students interested in earning scholarships off of your hardwork!
So far so good 4/5
I just downloaded today and I have started to earn money! I’m just confused on how I get my scholarships? Do I receive them after graduation or when I get accepted into college??
AMAZING FOR COLLEGE ! 5/5
I never knew apps like this existed until I saw an ad one day and tried it. This app helps to raise college funds for different colleges by using micro-scholarships. The micro-scholarships vary from grades to clubs to community service, it can all be used to raise money for college! I think this is amazing because I’m only a sophomore, but I know college is expensive and I want to prepare. You not only need to be a sophomore and up, you can also be a freshman. I only wish that more colleges would set up RaiseMe accounts. But many colleges do have accounts! I 100% recommend!!
Good so far 5/5
It’s a good app for these mini scholarships and anything helps for college, if I really can get this when applying to college it’s a huge help.
I basically have a full ride to a college and I'm only a sophomore 5/5
Wow this is really amazing and takes a lot of stress from my shoulders. I have always had good grades and it really motivates me to see actual results from them on this app. I basically followed every college that was giving out micro scholarships and there is one that is willing to give me $80,000 to go to their school, which would cover almost all of my years at their college leaving me only around 6k to pay per year. However since I’m going to be a junior next year and have two more years of high school left I’m very sure I can get enough money to get a full ride. This app is a dream come true! I hope you can get more partners though as I would love to have as many choices as possible but understand that it would be difficult.
Very good and helpful as a high school student 5/5
Good thing is that they help get you in the school that fits you and is a good program and very helpful for high school student
Why to pick Raise Me 5/5
Raise Me is not only an amazing app for scholarships that allows you to make college more affordable but it also helps young students to filter all there academic achievements to make further college searches run smoothly. This would be the first and number one scholarship I would recommend to people just starting there college search journey!
Ideas for improvement 5/5
This is an amazing app and by the time I reach senior year, I’ll have so many scholarships. I have only one problem: I have a class where I get a lot of extra credit so my grade is above 100. It affects my GPA for the better and I would really like to utilize that. Thank you!
Option for weighted GPA 4/5
First off, I love this app. I’m excited to see how much money I can potentially earn. However, I put in my grades, and I’m not happy that it is unweighted. I took quite a few honors classes that I admit, I didn’t do to well in, but I want my GPA to reflect that I took them. I believe we, as well as colleges, should be able to see our weighted and unweighted GPA
Amazing ✨ 5/5

This app is a really simple and easy way to earn micro scholarships! I earned 25k for University of Pittsburgh just for entering all of my courses, grades, activities, and SAT/AP scores throughout high school. It really is worth taking half an hour or so each semester to fill out as much info as you can before and during senior year. Don’t wait too long though, because there are deadlines to entering info eligible for micro scholarships! The only not-so-great part of this app is that not every college participates in these micro scholarships, so the college you want to go to may not offer you anything. That’s not really the app’s fault, but it could open so many more opportunities for students if they Raise.me could reach out to more colleges and cooperate with them and add them to their program. 11/10 would recommend to any student 9-12. I said what I said *mic drop*.
Thoughts + Suggestions 5/5
Personally I love this app, it’s great for a GPA calculator, shows what schools are safety/target/reach, puts together all of your activities/service, overall I really like this app and the financial opportunities it offers.
However, I’ve seen some colleges offer money for virtual visits yet there is no place to add that specifically (as it’s not a campus visit) in the College Preparedness category - hopefully that option will be added soon, especially as many colleges are closed for touring and events.
RaiseMe is life changing 5/5
RaiseMe has helped me accumulate multiple micro-scholarships, so many in fact that I need around $20,000 more to most schools I’m following until I have a full ride! All within my freshman and sophomore years. This app has especially helped me manage my earnings and academic requirements for college.
Good app with great potential 4/5
I was skeptical at first but the app’s interface made it easy to fill in information and gain micro scholarships. I’ve received a financial aid letter from my dream school and the amount of scholarships predicted on raise me was included in my award letter. I’m so happy because my dream school is affordable and I don’t have to take on loans! Filling out my profile, I did wish more schools were in partnership with raise me, but the app is great nonetheless
Editing info 4/5
Is there a way that I can edit my credits?? I am a freshman in high school but I earned credits in middle school by taking advanced classes. See that I can only input courses that I take now there isn’t a way that my prior credits can be added.
Potential, but... 2/5
By Once a Swiftie
This app seems wonderful, however, every time I move to add information, I am logged out and forced to reinsert my name, age, and other information.
Great app but needs fixing 3/5
I when i seen an add for this app i downloaded it immediately. I was very excited to use it. When i used it for the first week it was going great. I would enter my courses and my gpa wouldn’t show up at all. It also started logging me out and i would have to set up my profile all over again.
I like the app and how it gives me a perspective of the scholarships i could earn, but its hard to navigate when it logs me out every 5 minutes and everytime i log back in I have to fill out all my information again
Technical issues 1/5
When I logged into the app and put all my information and said my session time was up and I had to log in again for no reason and when I go to do that I was unable to click the log in button and it would make me sign up again. It was a huge waste of time.
Constantly Signing Me Out 2/5
Hello, I just downloaded the app today and as I'm using the app, it constantly signs me out. And when I press log in , it makes me go through the process of putting my name, age, school, address, all of that when I've ready done that multiple times! Why does this keep happening?
Good, but Nah 4/5
So I think that this app is great for me and other students to earn more money for the colleges and universities we want to go to, however, there is one big issue about the app that annoying. Every time when I add a college that I prefer to go to, the app goes back to the log in screen. If the creator is reading this, please fix this problem.
An idea 5/5
You should add a guest mode where people can see everything you can do and then decide if they want to sign up or not.
They require you to put in your address, then abuse that right and send you letters. They require you to put in a lot of your information that they would never, do no get this app, they want your information and will send you mail to whatever address you enter
So far so good? 4/5
By Not to be names
I’m wondering how I can find out if this app is really legit? I have my concerns and now I can’t remove my personal info, I’m worried this “awarded money” isn’t real...
Is there any organization who has backed up RaiseMe? Just wondering...
I was hoping there would me a privacy option so my school is only visible to me.
This is a great app for college planning and I recommend getting it.
Not great 1/5
College bound US citizen living abroad. I’m trying to find scholarships but the App only works in the US. What about the hundreds of thousands US students living abroad who want to study in the USA? Not a helpful app!!
I am a high school senior that does classes at the local college. I tried to add this college to the schools the I have attended but it won’t save the college. It only saves my high school. If this could be fixed that would be great!
Love it! 5/5
It has helped me so much with my college journey!
Virtual Guidance 5/5
Raise me offers a bit more clarity through a very confusing path to college.
Needs more work 4/5
By lil Zantac
The GPA calculated on this app isn’t accurate to my transcript. With this issue I am unable to earn scholarships from some of my favorite schools. I’ve also earn high school credits in middle school so I’m wondering when are they going to add a feature enables users to put in those classes. I have noticed that there aren’t many HBCUs that offer scholarships on the app.
Great for a basic idea of the school 5/5
By Hallie Gleeson
I started using Raise Me about half a year ago. I am a high school freshmen with a 4.0 GPA. I like many of the features Raise Me offers. It is easy to use and an excellent tool to discover and research colleges. However, I would like to see and “dorm and residential” section added. I’d like to know if the dorms were co-ed, air-conditioned, etc. In addition, I’d like to be able to filter schools by major. I’d also love if there was an outside scholarship list. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
a bit disappointing 3/5
By smells like
got super excited when i saw this on my ig and yes it is what it says it is but unfortunately not all colleges use it. the ad is a bit misleading with this as it makes it as if you can get money for any college but that simply isn’t it. there’s only about 13 colleges that actually use it so if you don’t want to go to one of those schools you’re kind of out of luck.
Got recommended to try this in Freshman Year 5/5
This is so helpful for not only getting micro scholarships, but also looking and comparing colleges, crating a college list, and getting an overview of financial aid. Also, as I add more and more to the app I have enough information in one place to create a resume for college/universities and possible jobs.
Wow thanks for nothing
No AICE 1/5
By wanting scholarships
I’m in the AICE program which is a huge program above AP and below IB where you graduate from high school with a second degree from Cambridge university. How can I use this app when most of the really intense classeso I take (6/8) are something they don’t offer.
It doesn’t show what the college will really give you 1/5

Needs Improvement 2/5
By Aria Rimel
1) Everytime I attempt to add new extracurricular activities the app crashes and kicks me out.
2) The app doesn’t have most of the colleges I am applying for, and I understand not having ivy’s but they’re missing so many other colleges and universities
great concept, frustrating bugs 3/5
there are some bugs where it glitches out of the app when you try and add extracurriculars, test scores, etc. it’s very frustrating. besides that, it’s a pretty good app :)
App won’t let me finish the first steps 2/5
At some point it just stopped working, I can’t finish the first steps cause every time I try to login it loads and shows where I left off and then straight after it goes back to the login screen
This app won’t allow me to sign up 1/5
I was beginning to use this app and when I was almost finished signing up it went back to the sign in page and won’t let me finish
It is a great app by far!!!
This is an informative tool. It helps you understand what your costs will be for colleges and predicts what your possible scholarship would be. I did get scholarship offers from schools but did NOT get any monies from raise me.
What Grade Do I Have To Be In? 5/5
I have a question…what exact grade do you have to be in to download this app? Because I’m a freshman now and I want a scholarship to go to college when I graduate, but college is 3 years ahead of me, so I wonder if I could still download the app right now and put in my grades and everything to get scholarships even though it won’t be a long time before I go.
