RaiseMe: Prospective Students
Lakeland University has partnered with RaiseMe, allowing students to earn performance-based scholarships for achievements throughout high school in and outside the classroom.
As students progress through high school, they'll have transparency into
the minimum amount of scholarship or aid grants they can expect from
Lakeland before applying.
Here’s how it works:
Earnings are instantly displayed in the RaiseMe portfolio and represent the minimum amount of aid or scholarships students can receive from Lakeland University if and when they enroll.
RaiseMe: Current Students
Lakeland University has partnered with the college readiness and student success platform RaiseMe to launch a micro-scholarship-based student success initiative for current Lakeland students.
By completing activities like mapping out a four-year plan with their academic advisor, uploading their professional resume on Handshake, joining a student organization, attending convocations, etc., RaiseMe's micro-scholarship program rewards our students for building engagement and community.
Students can be rewarded with personalized, incremental and achievement-based scholarships ranging from $10 to $100 each to be applied toward tuition in the following academic year. Lakeland students can earn up to $750 in scholarships per academic year. Students should receive an email from RaiseMe near the beginning of each term inviting them to claim their accounts to begin earning micro-scholarships.
The program is meant to supplement and enhance the robust support Lakeland already provides to all students. Money earned through RaiseMe, combined with Lakeland financial aid, cannot exceed tuition and students already receiving full tuition scholarships are not eligible.
