I hope you enjoy Ramen Noodles, because the cost of college isn’t dropping anytime soon.
You’ve probably heard this many times, but college is very expensive. Very, very, expensive. However, a tool students don’t utilize enough, are scholarships. Schooly, a company led by Christopher Gray, took the initiative to create a service through a website, as well as an app, to help you find scholarships. Christopher Gray won $1.3 million in scholarships, and brought that expertise of the scholarship process into his business. The process is very time-consuming, repetitive, and quite frankly, irritable.
Here is a brief explanation of what Schooly is according to their website. “Scholly helps you fill out 8 simple parameters, and then our comprehensive and constantly curated scholarship database delivers a verified and personalized list of scholarships. Our platform also gives you access to management tools and scholarship essay resources to help you manage deadlines, track progress and win the money you deserve.”
You can purchase this app for $3.00 on the app and google play store, and save thousands, maybe even millions of dollars in scholarship money. You can even purchase this platform and donate it to a group, something they call a bulk purchase. The main purpose of this app is to help students find the correct scholarships for them, and dummy down the long, excruciating process of applying for scholarships.
Gray launched the site roughly two years ago, and has helped students raise an estimated $15 million dollars in scholarships according to their website. Schooly was even featured on Shark Tank last year, getting a $40,000 deal. Shark Tank certainly helped this company take off, according to Gray, Scholly was the number one seller in the App Store for about two weeks during that time.
What makes Schooly unique is the mobile platform is provides. You can search for personalized scholarships on your phone wherever you have an internet connection. It’s fast, easy, and proven to work. 3 dollars spent today, thousands saved tomorrow.
