RAISE.ME - Exploring Penn State - March 22, 2017

Penn State’s Micro-Scholarship program with RAISE.ME motivates students to achieve goals that will, both, foster their development as well-rounded young adults and, at the same time, increase their admission chances when applying to colleges. The main tool that is used to motivate students are “Micro-Scholarships” – college scholarship money that is awarded to students each time they achieve a small but important goal in high school, such as getting an “A” in a course ($120 Micro-Scholarship), taking the PSAT or ACT Plan ($150 MicroScholarship), and perfect attendance ($100 Micro-Scholarship). All students from grades 9-12 are eligible to participate. This scholarship money is stacked on top of any financial aid package they receive from Penn State. The maximum amount a student can earn is $16,000.
