Raise.Me

StFX recently partnered with Raise.me (www.raise.me/join/StFX) to show students from the United States how their academic and extracurricular achievements can result in scholarships. We want to recognize student contributions to community and school, while rewarding hard work.

A few examples of Raise.me Micro-scholarships:

  • $40 for taking 2+years of foreign language classes
  • Up to $120 for community service
  • $80 for holding a leadership position
  • $20 for each extracurricular activity

If you’re a student in grade 9-12, you can create a free Raise.me account now to see how much you’ve already earned with StFX, and learn how to earn more.  Raise.me gives you the chance to earn scholarships before you apply rather than finding out later.  To be eligible for these scholarships, you must apply to StFX with your High School transcripts by March 1st.

 

Please Note that if you receive a larger scholarship from StFX, your scholarship will include the amount you have earned on Raise.me.
