4:00 AM ET Fri, 5 May 2017

Raise.me is a for-profit site that allows high school students to earn cash to use for college, by earning good grades or from extracurricular activities. Co-founder and CEO Preston Silverman says more than 225 colleges and universities are giving “micro-scholarships” to potential students, but only if they apply, are accepted and enroll in that school.
