Last fall, Valley Christian became one of the first schools in the country to introduce the RaiseMe program, which was launched with the support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and U.S. colleges.
Our Office of Academic, College, and Career Advising introduced the RaiseMe scholarship site with the Class of 2020. Since debuting it in the fall, we have had 119 students begin earning micro-scholarships through the site. The 119 students have earned nearly $4,600,000 in college scholarships through RaiseMe, including more than $2.4 million from the Class of 2020.
So what’s RaiseMe? Through the program, students can begin earning guaranteed scholarships from 250+ colleges as early as their freshman year. Be sure your student regularly adds good grades, community service, extracurricular activities, and other achievements to their RaiseMe Portfolio to earn micro-scholarships from colleges.
