The college landscape today is broken for millions of students. Equal access to higher ed has become one of the greatest issues of our time. At RaiseMe, we're reinventing educational pathways and changing the way students access billions of dollars each year in financial aid for college. Rather than waiting until the end of high school to award financial aid, which is too late to affect students' college ambitions or specific application decisions, RaiseMe enables students to earn "micro-Scholarships" automatically throughout high school based on their individual achievements in and outside of the classroom. Students have already earned over $2 billion in micro-scholarships from our university partners. We're on the look out for talented individuals to help us build a large, impactful business and a product that will change millions of lives.
