Teens who use this app to log their school achievements may very well feel motivated to do even more while earning real money, but there are some privacy concerns. As kids work to achieve academic, sports, and volunteer goals, they can experience how that initiative earns them scholarship money on RaiseMe: College Scholarships for High Schoolers. While the number of higher education institutions participating is currently limited to under 300, there are still many well-known and prestigious public and private schools listed on the app, which gives kids a broad range of schools to consider. Of course, teens who use it need to be accepted to their chosen college before the scholarship money listed on the app becomes real, but if they're doing the hard work needed to earn those dollars, their chances of acceptance can only improve. On the downside, it's not entirely clear from the privacy policy which third parties are privy to personal information, so families will have to decide if that uncertainty is worth the money and motivation the app can bring.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
