DWU launches new scholarship program with Raise.Me

High school students, beginning as early as ninth grade, can now track their anticipated scholarship awards to Dakota Wesleyan University through Raise.Me.

High school students, beginning as early as ninth grade, can now track their anticipated scholarship awards to Dakota Wesleyan University through Raise.Me.

Dakota Wesleyan has partnered with Raise.Me to help show high school students how to accumulate scholarship money for things they are already doing and that best prepare them to succeed.

Raise.me is free for students and is a social enterprise focused on expanding access to higher education, especially among low-income and first-generation students.

Students sign up with Raise.Me and track scholarship dollars for individual achievement and progress. For example, if a student gets an A in a class, they earn $400 toward their education at Dakota Wesleyan. There are four categories in which students can earn scholarship money: grades, community service, leadership roles, and college engagement.

The awards that students can accrue through Raise.Me represent the minimum scholarship that they will be offered at DWU. Once the deadline has been passed on Raise.me, DWU will work individually with students to determine their final scholarship amount.

DWU has a price calculator on its website to estimate tuition and other costs, and a list of all DWU-specific scholarships which gives students an idea of the cost, but Raise.Me can be done on a mobile device, updated at any time.

Dakota Wesleyan is the first and only university in South Dakota signed up with Raise.Me.

Raise.me also provides a free portal to high school counselors to view students' progress and communicate with students. Students, educators and parents can learn more at www.raise.me . Dakota Wesleyan's sign-up page is located at www.raise.me/edu/dakota-wesleyan-university .
