2016-2017 Ninja Guidance: New England Institute of Technology & Raise.me!

T ​his post is for sophomores and juniors:
As you consider your future plans and if those plans involve thought of college, please be aware of the initiative that many colleges are starting. It is called Raise.me. You can read more about Raise.me and how one college is using it below. This is from New England Institute of Technology:
​ I hope you’re doing well! We wanted to follow up on the New England Institute of Technology’s recent communication to share more about their partnership with Raise.me and the opportunity for your 9th-11th graders to earn scholarships for their achievements from New England Tech and over 210 other colleges and universities across the country.
Through Raise.me, Northwest Technical Ctr students can earn what we call “micro-scholarships” for everything they are doing in and out of the classroom. For example, students can earn $70 for each A from New England Tech and $60 for taking an AP or IB course – among many other scholarships. This is a great way to keep students motivated as they finish the school year and plan their courses for next year!
​O ver half a million students have signed up to earn micro-scholarships on Raise.me, so thank you for all that you are doing to help your students succeed!
*About Raise.me: *Raise.me is a social enterprise working in partnership with over 210 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.
