Through the College’s partnership with RaiseMe, prospective first-year students can begin earning micro-scholarships toward a Mount Holyoke education as early as 9th grade! No essays to write – these awards are based on the achievements of any highly qualified college-bound student, from tackling rigorous coursework and participating in extracurricular activities to visiting campus and completing an interview. We think it’s an excellent way for students to get a clearer picture of what Mount Holyoke’s merit-based commitment to them might look like if admitted. (Note that RaiseMe is currently only applicable to domestic students, and that microscholarships earned will be reflected in, rather than added to, an admitted student’s award. Like all Mount Holyoke merit awards, microscholarship earnings are applicable to on-campus study only.)
