Are you or a loved one seeking ways to ween down the price tag on college tuition. Stacking up on available scholarships is a great option to start.
How? There are a number of scholarship websites for you to get started. There also may be multiple opportunities within your community. You can find out by asking around from your neighbors, community members, church friends, colleagues and local community organization leaders.
Another great option, is the Scholly app. I discovered this life changing tool when watching an episode of ABC’s entrepreneurial show series, Shark Tank.
What is Scholly?
Scholly is an interactive app that connects students and families with the best scholarship matches, fast, because we know that student success starts with affording college.
How does Scholly work?
You will answer a series of questions about yourself, where you live, your interests, etc. And, Scholly will provide you with a list of scholarship options that are available to you. The app does all the work for you. It is then your job to apply to the scholarship requests.
Scholly has helped hundreds of thousands of students and families who have been able to use the platform to find over $50 million in scholarship money to go the colleges of their dreams. We hope that you are one of them. Learn more and visit their website to get started on your scholarship search!
