RaiseMe microscholarships

RaiseMe is an organization that allows students to earn "microscholarship" funds throughout high school in recognition of their academic achievements and outstanding accomplishments. Students can earn microscholarships during each year of high school.

RaiseMe establishes relationships ("partners") with higher education institutions throughout the United States that incorporate the microscholarships in their institution's financial aid awards. 

Students must meet three requirements to receive their microscholarships at Wayne State University. First, they must apply and be accepted for regular admission. Second, they must enter their RaiseMe earnings by November 1 of their senior year. Third, they must apply for financial aid by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

High school students who earned microscholarship awards prior to November 1, 2021 and who enroll at Wayne State University as first-time undergraduates in fall 2022 are eligible to receive RaiseMe microscholarship awards. After fall 2022, RaiseMe microscholarship awards will no longer be accepted at WSU.

Note: Students who are eligible for merit awards and/or need-based financial aid based on their FAFSA data, may receive a total scholarship amount that is higher than their high school microscholarship amount. The total scholarship amount will include the microscholarship. It will not be in addition to the microscholarship.
