College is expensive – and the cost of tuition is only rising each year. Figuring out how to pay for college is a struggle for many college students across the nation, with more and more students graduating with an exorbitant amount of debt and loans. That’s where the app Scholly, which emerged about two years ago, comes in. Here’s what you need to know about Scholly and why you should check out and download the app.

  1. It’s Easy. Forget filling out a long list of characteristics about yourself to get a list of scholarships you qualify for – with Scholly, you simply fill out eight simple parameters (things like race, gender, GPA, grade, etc.) and receive an up-to-date list of scholarships you’re eligible for. The app itself is easy to navigate and you can save scholarships to look at later. Plus, the app’s got a deadline button feature that can help you keep track of deadlines with the ability to add a reminder to your calendar.
  2. It Won’t Waste Your Time. Unlike other scholarship search engines or when you search for scholarships on your own, Scholly won’t waste your time as its algorithm will curate a personalized list of scholarships that you actually qualify for, based on the parameters you filled in. A frustrating aspect of searching for scholarships as a student is weeding through the many scholarships out there to find the ones that aren’t scams, that you qualify for, whose deadlines haven’t passed, and that still exists and hasn’t last been updated in 2013. Scholly saves you time and provides you with a list of current and applicable scholarships that you’ll actually have a chance of winning.
  3. It’s Legit. You may think that Scholly sounds too good to be true – but the app is totally legit. Creator Christopher Gray appeared on a November 2015 episode of ABC’s “Shark Tank” where he received $40,000 in capital from sharks Lori Greiner and Daymond John for a 15% share of his startup. After the episode aired, Scholly was the #1 app in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store for nearly a month. The company also won Under Armour’s Cupid’s Cup competition and Steve Case’s Rise of the Rest Competition and has been featured on Good Morning America, Forbes, USA Today, CNN, Fox News, and more.
  4. It’s Definitely For You. As a current undergraduate or graduate student in the U.S., you definitely wouldn’t turn down free money for school – which means Scholly is for you. Thanks to its effective scholarship-matching platform being used by thousands of students, Scholly has successfully helped students win more than $50 million in scholarships.

Sold on Scholly? The app is available on iPhone and Android phones or on the web and costs just $2.99.
