Scholly is everything you need in a student success and financial wellness platform. Whether you need money for college, or are looking for new ways to grow and save money, Scholly is here to support you!

Short answer: absolutely! Since 2015, Scholly has grown to over 3 million users and has helped students win more than $100 million dollars in scholarships, grants, and funds. Scholly has also partnered with big brands like Google, Amazon, and Netflix, to create more scholarship opportunities. Check out our Testimonials page to see for yourself! 

Scholly Search is our app tool that matches high school, college, and graduate school students (and folks who’ve already graduated) with personalized scholarships, grants, and funds. Designed to ease the scholarship search process, Scholly Search’s adaptive matching engine and curated database promise to deliver smarter, targeted lists of scholarships.

Scholly Search gives students a list of scholarships curated by our dedicated team to ensure you’re receiving the most relevant opportunities. With our in-app features, you can track and manage your progress on individual scholarships—like if you’ve started an application or have won! And unlike many other tools out there, we’ll never sell your data to third-party companies.

Any individual looking for scholarship or fund opportunities; whether you’re a student, a post-grad, or out of school, we have opportunities for you! 

Yes – as long as you are studying at an accredited college/university in the United States. Unfortunately, we are not able to assist international students attending schools abroad at this time. 

About Scholarships

You totally can! Many students are under the impression that once they’re in college or beyond, they can no longer apply for scholarships, and that’s far from the truth! While many scholarships are targeted towards high school seniors that are applying to college or have already been admitted, there are also numerous scholarships meant specifically for students currently attending college or graduate school. Don’t forget to update your profile as you enter a new school year to ensure that you receive the strongest matches!

But we want to stress that Scholly Search isn’t just for students either! A lot of our funds are open to folks who are out of school as well!

Our database is updated weekly. On the Matches screen, members will be able to see scholarships labeled “New” at the top of their list, letting them know immediately when they’ve been matched with new and updated scholarships. If a scholarship remains inactive for a long period of time, it will be removed from our database.

Good news! You don’t. Well, sort of. The truth is, most scholarship essay prompts are the same or very similar. Many of them are about common themes like leadership, community service, goals, etc. Write a few essays then revise them to fit different prompts. Take a look at our quick apply scholarships!

Not yet, though we’re working on it! Right now we’re focused on giving students the ability to find scholarships as quickly as possible and to improve their writing and math skills. As we improve our platform, we’ll let users know about new features as soon as they’re released.

Make sure your profile is up-to-date. For example, if you signed up as a high school senior and are now a college freshman, double-check that your profile reflects that. More importantly, the Profile questions are one of the best ways to expand your search. Don’t forget to take some time to fill out your profile, look through the available options, and select every one that applies to you. This will help our algorithm match you with as many choices as possible. Happy hunting!

While we ensure that you’re connected with the most relevant scholarships based on the parameters you’ve entered, we’re not part of the winner selection process.

To make sure you’re matched with as many relevant scholarship opportunities  as possible, please fill out all of the parameters very thoroughly.

You can start applying to scholarships anytime! Although it’s most common to find them during the fall and winter seasons, scholarships can be found all year round!

Scholarships, funds, and grants are merit-based, meaning that they are a gift that you do not have to pay back. Student loans, on the other hand, are debts that have to be paid back to the government or banking institutions.

Not necessarily. Sometimes, scholarships take time to process. If you haven’t heard back, there are still plenty of other scholarships and funds that you can apply for!

Yes! Some scholarships don’t even ask for your grade when you apply. A lot of scholarship committees look at applicants in a holistic way and factor in other things, like your extracurriculars, goals, etc.
