First-Year $uccess Program

Welcome to the Stetson First-Year $uccess Program: a pilot program designed to reward students for engaging in behaviors that promote academic excellence, social connection, and personal development. Students who may need some additional support to thrive at Stetson are invited to participate in this program during their first year of enrollment at the university. Those who accept the invitation to participate and claim their First-Year $uccess account are given incentives in the form of additional one-time scholarship dollars for their sophomore year at Stetson up to $1,500. These activities range from attending a tutoring session to joining a student club or organization, to completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) on time.

Participants: log into your First-Year $uccess Program Portal using your My.Stetson credentials to log your activities and start earning your scholarship.

Questions about the Stetson RaiseMe Success Program can be directed to the Assistant Vice President of Institutional Research and Effectiveness, Colin Hilton-MacFarlane, at [email protected].
