You've already started running your own road. Now see where it can take you!

Sign up for free and earn up to $4000 in scholarships from MSU Denver for your high school achievements.

We have partnered with RaiseMe to allow you to earn scholarships to MSU Denver while you are still in high school. When MSU Denver awards student scholarships on RaiseMe, we are guaranteeing these scholarships will be included in your financial aid package after you are admitted.


The RaiseMe Basics:

  • You can earn up to $4000 ($1000 a year/$500 per semester) toward your education at MSU Denver in a MSU Denver Earned Scholarship
  • Complete your RaiseMe profile by March 1st of your senior year and be sure to follow MSU Denver
  • Apply for admission to MSU Denver by July 1st
  • Have a high school GPA of 2.8 or better (maintain a 2.0 at MSU for annual renewal)
  • Enroll in a minimum of six (6) credit hours per term

You will have six (6) years from the time of your high school graduation to use all of your earned micro-scholarships at MSU Denver.

  • Attend a College Fair
  • Visit Campus

Is RaiseMe really free?
Yes. RaiseMe is entirely free for high school students. To sign up, visit the Metropolitan State University of Denver profile and create an account.

Who can use RaiseMe?

Students who are in grades 9, 10, 11, or 12 and attend high school in the United States can use RaiseMe right now.

Who's eligible to earn micro-scholarships?
MSU Denver's RaiseMe scholarships are available for incoming freshman.

How do I get started?
You begin by creating an account on RaiseMe. Once your account is established, you should follow MSU Denver and add achievements such as grades, extracurricular activities and leadership positions to your portfolio.

How do I receive these scholarships from MSU Denver?
You must follow MSU Denver and complete your profile on RaiseMe by March 1 of your senior year.

I’m in 10th, 11th, or 12th grade. Can I get scholarship money for things I achieved earlier in high school?
Yes. You can fill in your high school portfolio retroactively with achievements going back to the start of 9th grade and will be eligible to earn scholarships as if you have been using RaiseMe since 9th grade. The more complete your portfolio is, the more opportunities you have to earn micro-scholarships.

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 MSU Denver.

Can I use the scholarships I earn from the MSU Denver program to pay the cost of attending another school?
No. Micro-scholarships are not transferrable between different colleges. You can only use the scholarships that 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 9 through 12 in order for MSU Denver to award you the correct amount in scholarships.

Can the RaiseMe scholarship be used in addition to other scholarships from MSU Denver?
The final total of scholarships earned on RaiseMe represent a guaranteed minimum amount of a Metro Earned Scholarship award you will receive in your financial aid package to attend MSU Denver. If you receive additional scholarships based upon other factors through the admission, financial aid or general MSU Denver scholarship application process, then that package will include the amount that you have earned on RaiseMe.
