RaiseMe FAQs

RaiseMe is a free platform that helps high school and community college students earn micro-scholarships for academic and extracurricular achievements. When students add achievements (such as good grades, extracurricular activities, and membership in honor societies) to their RaiseMe portfolio, they could be eligible to earn micro-scholarships to ECU or RaiseMe's other partner colleges.
Eligible transfer students can earn micro-scholarships to ECU for achievements during community college such as:

  • Earning good grades, maintaining a high GPA, or taking a full course load
  • Participating in extracurricular activities
  • Volunteering in the community
  • Being a member of certain honor societies
  • Visiting ECU's campus, attending an off-campus ECU event, or meeting with a transfer advisor
  • Holding a part-time job or internship
To receive these scholarships, students must apply, be admitted, and enroll at East Carolina University. For specific details and a full list of the activities that ECU awards micro-scholarships for, sign up for a RaiseMe transfer account and follow East Carolina University.
As part of our commitment to college access, ECU's RaiseMe program is only open to students residing in North Carolina who complete the FAFSA and demonstrate financial need. Students must maintain a GPA of 2.5 to be eligible and complete a minimum of 24 credit hours by the earning deadline for your desired entry term. 

You must follow ECU on RaiseMe, have a complete portfolio, and apply to ECU for Fall Admission by June 4. You must meet academic requirements and enter in the fall semester. You must complete the FAFSA and demonstrate eligibility for need-based aid. Earnings represent the minimum guaranteed aid you will receive if you are admitted to and enroll at East Carolina University. Once admitted, your micro-scholarship earnings will automatically be included in your financial aid package.
Your micro-scholarships represent a minimum amount of scholarship and grant aid you will receive from ECU if you apply, are admitted, and enroll. You may be eligible for more aid based on your formal application for admission and financial aid forms. If you receive a higher amount of scholarship and grant aid in your comprehensive award letter from ECU, note that this includes the amount you earned on RaiseMe and is not in addition to your earnings on RaiseMe.
Begin by creating a transfer student account on RaiseMe. Ensure that you are following East Carolina University, and then add achievements such as grades and extracurricular activities to your portfolio.
