About Raiseme

RaiseMe is on a mission to improve access to higher education by transforming the way billions of dollars of financial aid get distributed each year. Rather than waiting until the end of high school to award aid, which is too late to impact students' college ambitions or application decisions, RaiseMe enables students to earn aid towards college throughout high school, starting as early as 9th grade, for doing all the things that best prepare them to succeed both in and outside of the classroom.

RaiseMe is building on the growing body of research that shows the benefits of increased transparency of financial aid, the power of nudges, and the effectiveness of performance-based aid in improving student outcomes. Students in one out of every two high schools in America are earning aid on Raise.me from a growing list of 180+ colleges like ASU, Carnegie Mellon, Penn State, NYU, and Georgia Tech.

Each day at RaiseMe, we're focused on making sure that all students have the opportunity to achieve their college and career ambitions. We're looking for passionate high-achievers who want to build a company that will help millions of students around the world.

If that's you, join our team and let's create a brighter future for students everywhere!
