A micro-scholarship is an amount of money that students are eligible to earn based on individual achievements throughout 9th-12th grade. They are awarded by colleges and universities who partner with RaiseMe, and each college or university creates their own program of micro-scholarship. The amount earned via RaiseMe represents the minimum amount of institutional aid that the college will award you if you are accepted and enroll in their school. Colleges decide what achievements they want to award and how much they will award to students who meet their eligibility requirements (which can be found on their College page). For example, one college might offer $50 for an A in Algebra, another might offer $300, and so on.

College Board Scholarship
I’m thrilled to introduce the College Board Opportunity Scholarships, a $25 million commitment to encourage more students to take the steps necessary to get into college. This first-of-its-kind national scholarship program lays out six simple steps that all students can take to get into college. Students have the chance to earn scholarships when they:
1.Build their college list.
2.Practice for the SAT®.
3.Improve their SAT score.
4.Strengthen their college list.
5.Fill out the FAFSA.
6.Apply to college.
The six steps highlighted by College Board Opportunity Scholarships help students plan by making a good starter list of schools, prepare so they can take their best shot at getting in, and pay for college by earning scholarships and applying for financial aid.
Beginning with the class of 2020, we'll be awarding scholarships ranging from $500 to $40,000.
This isn’t your typical scholarship program. It doesn’t require an essay or an application, and it doesn’t have a minimum GPA or SAT score requirement. The College Board Opportunity Scholarships are different. The program is open to all students who attend high school in the United States, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories.
Students can begin today by signing up on our site. The first step is to make a starter list of six colleges they want to attend. Just by making that list, they earn a chance for a $500 scholarship.

Please see your counselors for any scholarships that you DO sign up for. Please keep in mind the due date of each scholarship.The due dates are when the scholarships are due to the counselor’s office. The reason for some earlier dates is because the applications may have to be mailed out or taken by the counselors to a particular person in the county.
Many scholarships will require essays and recommendation letters so start early.
Choose a scholarship that is right for you. Scholarships will be added as they come in.
