Yes! We partner with RaiseMe to allow you to earn scholarships to Saint Martin’s earlier in high school and help you see how you can be a competitive candidate at Saint Martin’s. When Saint Martin’s University awards student scholarships on RaiseMe, we are guaranteeing these scholarships will be included in your merit or financial aid package after you are admitted.

Who's eligible to earn micro-scholarships?

How do I get started?
You begin by creating an account at www.raise.me/join/stmartin.Once your account is established, make sure you are following Saint Martin’s, and add achievements such as grades, extracurricular activities and leadership positions to your portfolio.
How do I receive these scholarships from Saint Martin’s?
You must follow Saint Martin’s and complete your profile on www.raise.me/join/stmartin by Nov. 15 of your senior year.
Can I get scholarship money for what I achieved earlier in high school?
Yes. You can fill in your high school portfolio retroactively with achievements going back to the start of ninth grade, and will be eligible to earn scholarships as if you have been using RaiseMe since ninth grade. The more complete your portfolio is, the more opportunities you have to earn micro-scholarships. Remember, Saint Martin’s micro-scholarships are locked in and cannot be changed after Nov. 15 of your senior year.
How often should I add achievements to my portfolio?
You should add achievements as frequently as you can throughout high school. Adding achievements to your portfolio increases your eligibility for earning scholarships from Saint Martin’s University.
Can I use the scholarships I earn from the Saint Martin’s University program to pay the cost of attending another school?
No. Micro-scholarships are not transferrable between different colleges. You can only use the scholarships you earn from one school towards the cost of attending that same college — not to any other school.
Which courses should I add to my portfolio?
You should add all of your courses from grades nine through 12 in order for Saint Martin’s University to award you the correct amount in scholarships.
Can the RaiseMe scholarship be used in addition to other scholarships from Saint Martin’s University?
The final total of scholarships earned on RaiseMe represent a guaranteed minimum amount of scholarship or grant aid you will receive in your financial aid package to attend our institution. If you receive a larger scholarship based upon other factors (like your final college application and FAFSA) through the admission application process, that package will include the amount you have earned on RaiseMe.
