Raise.me is a social enterprise working in partnership with the White House and over 180 colleges to expand access to higher education by improving the way students prepare for college—both financially and academically. Rather than waiting until the end of high school to award aid, which is often too late to impact a student’s college ambitions or choices, Raise.me enables students to earn grant aid 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. The amount that students earn from a college on Raise.me represents a guaranteed minimum amount of aid they’ll receive if they apply and are admitted to that college. Please visit https://www.raise.me/ for full details.

Finally, there are a large number of search engines: fastweb.com/ ; College Board; Scholarships.com; guaranteed-scholarships.com/; School Soup; studentscholarships.org; collegescholarships.org; scholarshipamerica.org/- there are many, many more. Students need to register, enter background information (religion, ethnicity, parent affiliation such as Lions Club, Masons) and the site will kick out all scholarships that the student is eligible to apply for.
