Co-founder Christopher Gray grew up in a single parent household and was able to snatch $1.2 million in private scholarship money. Knowing that many other students struggle to pay for college, he instantly started working on a platform for Scholly while in college at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
You may have seen Scholly on Shark Tank earlier this year, which was funded by Lori Greiner and Daymond John. They fell in love with the idea and with Gray. His goal was to make the search process disappear, and design the app so all you needed to do was apply for scholarships.
The app is 99 cents and is available on Google Play and the app store. Scholly simply asks some non - identifying quick questions: GPA, state, major, year, etc. Once you click search a whole list of offers come up that will match the questions you previously answered. You’re able to see the name of the scholarship, amount and the deadline to submit the application.
You can save the ones that interest you and start applying right away. There is a website version of the app is $2.99 due to the fact that it not only saves the applications into a calendar but it will notify you when applications are to be submitted.
Finding scholarships may not always be easy but Scholly is an app to make the process as simple as a touch of a button. Visit www.scholly.com to fi nd out more information.
