NEIT Launches College Scholarship Program for High School Students

Rhode Island raise me scholarship logoNew England Institute of Technology Launches College Scholarship Program for High School Students

 High School Students, Starting as Early As 9th Grade, Can Earn Scholarship Awards from New England Tech for Academic Achievements and Extracurricular Activities

 New England Institute of Technology (NEIT) is pleased to announce a new scholarship program that encourages high school students to achieve academic excellence in order to make their university experience more affordable. High school students can now earn “micro-scholarships” from NEIT starting in the 9th grade for a wide range of individual achievements through Raise.Me, an online social enterprise focused on expanding access to higher education, especially among low-income and first-generation students. New England Tech is the first and only university/college in Rhode Island to offer the Raise.me program to high school students.

Raise.me is free for students and provides a free portal for high school counselors to help students track their progress.

Raise.me was developed to prepare high school students for the college application process. Most colleges award scholarships and grants towards the end of a student’s senior year in high school. This process may prove to be difficult for some students who not have achieved all of their academic goals or who have applied to college later in the process. Raise.me encourages students to achieve higher grades, serve their community and work towards earning various awards all of which will impact a student’s college ambitions or choices.

In addition to improving clarity and access to financial aid options, the new program allows students to track specific goals they seek to accomplish throughout high school, helping them become more competitive college applicants and more successful college students. For example, New England Tech’s micro-scholarships will focus on the following three classifications:  Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Courses; Community Service Hours; and Honors and Awards.

Raise.me has partnered with a diverse set of more than 200 colleges and universities including Carnegie Mellon, Colby College, Georgia Tech, Penn State, the University of Rochester, and Tulane University.

Students, educators, and parents can learn more at www.raise.me/join/neit, by visiting the New England Tech Admissions website at –    http://www.neit.edu/Admissions/Programs-for-High-School-Students-Educators  or by contacting the Admissions Office at 800-736-7744 or Admissions@neit.edu.
