 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.

CT Dollars and Sense Financial Literacy Portal: A partnership of state agencies has launched CT Dollars & Sense, an on-line portal that provides one website for Connecticut students and parents to find out how to plan, save and pay for college. Students can get information on scholarships, loans, and college savings plans, and also learn how to budget their money or find internships. Information is available by visiting https://ctdollarsandsense.com/

www.CollegeCovered.com : This site, powered by Discover Student Loans, is a free resource on planning and paying for college with information on Discover Scholarship Sweepstakes Awards.

LendEDU's Guide to College Scholarships is a resource that teaches students and families the importance of searching for scholarships when figuring out how to pay for college. The site now includes a new search tool where students can filter scholarship opportunities based on their grade level, GPA, the scholarship amount, and the requirements of the scholarship. https://lendedu.com/blog/scholarships .

United Negro College Fund manages various scholarship programs and each program has its own eligibility criteria, open/close dates and required documentation. https://scholarships.uncf.org/ 

 Finally, there are a large number of search engines: GoingMerry.com ; fastweb.com ; College Board; Scholarships.com; scholarsapp.com; guaranteed-scholarships.com; School Soup; 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.  Again, great opportunities but there is work required in applying.
