University of Minnesota Twin Cities’ & Raise.Me Scholarship Program

Through the Raise.me online platform,  students in grades 9-12 can earn micro-scholarships from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities for their academic and extracurricular achievements, such as strong grades, rigorous coursework, or leadership positions.

The University of Minnesota Twin Cities’ partnership with Raise.me is a pilot program. At this time, students with a GPA of 3.6 can earn micro-scholarships toward their enrollment at the University of Minnesota’s College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (one of our seven freshman-admitting colleges). This college offers majors ranging from nutrition to sustainable systems management to animal science (see full list of majors below).

The micro-scholarships students earn on Raise.me represent the guaranteed minimum amount of scholarship aid they will receive if they apply and are admitted to the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences at the University of Minnesota. Our admissions decisions are based on a holistic review of each student’s applications, and the details are online at http://admissions.tc.umn.edu.

 If you have any questions about Raise.me, please contact Rachelle Hernandez, Associate Vice Provost for the Enrollment Management & Director of Admissions,  at 612-626-8378 or 1-800-752-1000.

About the Jackie Robinson Foundation

Jackie Robinson Foundation (JRF) is a public, not-for-profit national organization founded by Rachel Robinson in 1973 as a vehicle to perpetuate the memory of Jackie Robinson and his incredible achievements. Serving as an advocate for young people with the greatest need, the Foundation assists increasing numbers of minority youths through the granting of four-year college scholarships and comprehensive practical support. The Jackie Robinson Foundation is distinctive for providing much more than financial support. While each Jackie Robinson Scholar receives up to $28,000 over four years in direct support, they also become an active member in the Foundation’s unique Mentoring and Leadership Development Program, which is an extensive mentoring program that includes practical skills-building and exposure through attendance at conference workshops, the assignment of peer and professional mentors, assistance with internship and employment placement, and a myriad of other networking opportunities.
