Scholly takes the hassle out of the scholarship search process so you can focus on what’s important - getting free money for school. We have helped students win over $100 million in scholarships so far, making college affordable and dreams a reality. Scholly was created by Christopher Gray who won $1.3 million in scholarships through grit, sweat and hustle. In realizing how broken and time-consuming the financial aid and scholarship search processes were, he created Scholly to make things much easier. How does Scholly make it easy? * Personalized Scholarship Search: Find scholarships for college and graduate school tailored just for you * AI-Powered Proofreading: Instantly proofread and enhance scholarship essays and writing assignments with Scholly Editor (desktop only) * Easy Tracking: Manage and track your application statuses all in one place * Mobile & Desktop: Access your scholarships wherever you go, on all your devices You will not be charged during your free trial period. When the free trial ends, your iTunes Account will be charged for the annual subscription price of $29.99. To avoid that, you must cancel the subscription at least 24 hours before it expires. Manage your subscriptions in your iTunes Account Settings. Any unused portion of the free trial period will be forfeited when you purchase a subscription to Scholly. Membership automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Terms of Use:



  • Not worth it

    By College freshman 2022
    The app doesn’t have a diverse set of scholarships. It contains a set amount which everyone who has the app applies to and that creates greater competition. If you really want to win scholarships then don’t the old fashion way and research online.
  • Read the terms of agreement!

    By Lar.rose
    I knew this was too good to be true. Towards the end of the user terms of agreement, in bold letters, it states that the rights of any content that users produce is transferred to Scholly. This includes any ideas, essays, or media that you post! They specifically state that they then have all rights to that content and are allowed to modify it, publish it, and even market it if it’s a marketable idea. I think that this is wrong on so many levels, as many scholarship applications specifically ask you about ideas one may be wanting to pursue in their academic future. Just another example of a big company taking advantage of desperate college students. Shame on you. 👎
  • If you can... go for it!! | MUST READ | LOVE!! With one exception

    By She won't sugar code
    Having just made an account on Scholly, and read about how the app came to be, I was extremely excited to use the app. This app is unique in that it is easy to use, and narrows the scholarship search by allowing the user to check boxes that apply to their circumstances. This app is also beneficial because it provides examples of winning essays. In addition, articles are available to users that give tips on obtaining and improving scholarships, as well as tips for studying. It was to my surprise that something so game-changing came with a price. I shortly discovered that in order to get matched with a scholarship you must pay a monthly fee. Upon reading his story, Christopher Gray mentioned that growing up, he was an intelligent and capable young person, who unfortunately was poor. I can only imagine the amount of people with a similar story, or worse. The bottom line is that $2.99/ month is a mountain to climb for many. Although one could argue that a job is an application away, some just don’t have that type of flexibility in their time or wallets. I’d hate for others to not have access to such a great app, that connects others to free money, simply because of a monthly fee. I highly recommend Scholly. The only recommendation I have is to make this app free to all users. I understand that this task may be challenging for the developers, but as a young person in high school who is unemployed, paying a monthly fee ( as low as $2.99) is challenging. As much as I love the app, I will not be using it for this very reason: price. Christopher Gray: I’m not sure what goes into making this app what it is, but I truly believe you can find/develop a way to make it completely free for all. An app as valuable as this is needed because it is leading others to where the money is. Money means education. And education, for the most part, is how most of us are able to build sustaining careers for ourselves in today’s society. I hope my feedback is helpful. Thank you for your commitment to playing a vital role in the advancement of the education of others. You’re doing great work!
  • Scholarship??

    By Monsinia
    I did the application, filled out the whole thing and it brought to a “write and essay” section but only had a sample essay but nothing as far as submit an essay. So as far as I can see there were no scholarships available. If there was a scholarship available then why is the app pushing me towards an essay for a scholarship when I cannot submit for one?
  • Did not want to subscribe

    By unsubscribemerid
    Tried to scroll up and it subscribed me. Then went out of the app and while I was trying to click out of something else, the app popped up with the confirmation window that required my fingerprint when I was clicking for something else. Ridiculous!
  • Would be great if it worked

    By lilythedog97
    The app has stopped working for a while and continues to just load. I’ve used it before and it’s been helpful but I haven’t been able to use it. Please fix the bugs :)
  • The stole your money

    By Adcrismr
    I have a degree in Law and I was looking a scholarship for a Master in Law (I’m a refugee in the US) which this App doesn’t do. I have no job and I canceled this freaking subscription in iTunes but, not directly into the App so they charge me for the entire year for something that is garbage for me. Do not waste your money on this!!!
  • Need to PAY for it!

    By Eva.Angel😇✨
    I got this app seeing all the potential. It is a great eye opener and gives you access to unlimited opportunities for scholarships. BUT, if you click free all you have access to is a little bit of advice in a few articles, nothing good that the app advertises. All the scholarships and the matching, editors, everything you have to pay for with either the monthly or yearly package. Keep this in mind before you get your hopes up like I did.😊
  • Refund please

    By H.Dot60
    Ive downloaded free apps just like this app and in my opinion, they were just as helpful. I thought that maybe this would help me apply for the scholarships but just like the free apps, you have to do it yourself which is what I have been doing for months. If I could receive a refund that’d be great.
  • Helping those in need - at a price

    By sfhaaefvhmoomoo
    Let’s get this clear - you are paying money for an app that helps students that do not have the means to pay for schooling? A lot of people applying for scholarships are in need/need based situations and just can’t spend money on an app when you can do it for free elsewhere. Read the Apple spotlight for the app and thought how backwards this was - the creator was from a low income family and spent hours applying & now he wants to help other kids... at a price. Just do what the creator did, go to the library and apply - FOR FREE. It’s like making the homeless people reaching out to the food kitchen to pay a monthly subscription fee. I have no reason to complain - there are way better resources for free elsewhere - but I just thought this was ridiculous...

    app only does its purpose if you pay for it
  • Paid subscription while during free period

    By Mike DeMaess
    If you just want to try out the app for the free period do not do it. Go into the app knowing you will have to pay. I deleted my account and unsubscribed on the day my free trial ended but was still charged. I cannot get a refund from Apple or Scholly. Scholly does have decent support.
  • Worth it if you’re motivated

    By kat2x2
    Im a senior, i used to rely on the scholarship portals my university set up for me, thinking these would have everything in one place but after checking out this app I realized there are so many scholarship opportunities out there that weren’t presented to me because they are just obscure enough to not be in their radar but the app has gathered them all in one place. I’m glad this app exists and wish I’d had it when I was a freshman. If you take the time to go through it, answer ALL the questions for your parameters and it will match you with EVERYTHING, a list conveniently populated for you, updated with new scholarships, a timeline to help you keep track of deadlines coming up. This app is sooo helpful.
  • Useless app!

    By Gamemaster147
    Despite entering a tremendous amount of information, the app was unable to match me.
  • Mostly good

    By crazycatladykatie
    Overall a helpful app for finding scholarships at a pretty cheap price. There are ways it could improve. I got a lot of scholarships that didn’t match me, were for majors I wasn’t interested in or places I didn’t live. But it was hard to weed these out, because each scholarship gets one generic description that often isn’t very helpful. If the descriptions could be edited to show more important details like the requirements for application or essay word count, that would be so helpful. Also it would be really nice if we could look up scholarships. For example, if I could see all scholarships for business majors, or search for no essay scholarships. Things like that. That would definitely make this app 5 stars. As it is, I find it worth it for one month, but not any longer.
  • Stay away

    By Kelseq0713
    Used it once received lousy results and cancelled same day, yet it charged my account for a year subscription three days later.
  • Scam???

    By 3rd yr college
    Did anyone actually get a scholarship though?? Like is it worth it to pay because I’ve heard you’re not supposed to pay for scholarships it’s a scam😐😐🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️
  • Not working

    By 25caleb
    I tried using this app and I tried the 2.99 a month and the free version either way I never saw a scholarship and deleted it after two months.
  • I’m a student, it helps!

    By broke but hopefull
    Although I have yet to be granted a scholarship I have found here, it has provided me with an endless supply of choices from which to choose. I seen one or two sketchy ones but the greater majority are legitimate. I really like this app and I hope it pays off for me. Worth the 2.99
  • Paid stuff

    By ElKePoN
    As soon as downloaded it asks you to pay
  • Charging broke students?

    By ericmendo
    You have to pay money to find help getting money?? You do realize that students are looking for money to help their financial situation.... no thanks
  • Disappointed

    By Jawaddd
    I am bit disappointed. Too many bugs . There is no sorting options and not enough scholarships . Too many redundant questions
  • How am I supposed to pay if am asking for money

    By Dhiwnds
    Am sorry but I don’t think that I should pay money trying to obtain a scholarship.
  • Error.

    By Dmyourz
    Every time I open the app “server error” very disappointed tried finding scholarships and this keeps popping up. Monthly scholarship for nothing Iv used this app for 30 minutes! I want my $3 back.
  • Disappointed

    By Bed is great
    I was happy to finally see an app that had the ability to find college scholarships. After signing up for an account, I was immediately disappointed with the result. It had a monthly fee or a yearly fee. With my family being tight on money, I went to my home screen and deleted the app. I don’t understand why you would make something that costs money when as a child, the founder was part of a family that was laid off. I’m guessing he didn’t have an extra $5 laying around. I’m going to find a new app that is free.
  • $2.99

    By WWE needs to update this app
    Most students need some form of aid to help cover the cost of tuition and other fees. If the creators of this app want to charge its users $$ then the scholarships should be a given. Why pay $$ for scholarships that are not guaranteed, appears to be a waste of $$. As a student I do not have $$ to waste on scholarships that are not guaranteed.
  • Pay money to get money?

    By Afspeck37
    I almost had my account fully created but something told me to do some research on it. Sure enough Scholly was subscription based. It doesn’t make any sense for me, who NEEDS money to go to school will SPEND money for a CHANCE to get money. There are other scholarship search engines out there that are free.
  • No way to sort by age or degree

    By Lauryn Effie
    Has been a good way to show me scholarships I wouldn’t normally know about but It would be really nice for the age to be an input option. A lot of my ‘matches’ are for students under 18 and as a person going back to school I am 15 years older than that. Does a really poor job of sorting for graduate degrees as well. I don’t know if the information is used for matching or not but again my ‘matches’ are for someone without a degree, someone in high school or trying to go to undergrad.
  • Wish I could give it a lower rating

    By 126525364/
    Pay to play. Deleted this garbage app immediately.
  • Not a good app

    By amlasavenue
    You have to pay to get actual scholarship matches. I would not recommend downloading it.
  • A mess!

    By Wildcats1865
    This app matched me to sooooo many scholarships...most of which I was ineligible for. It took hours to wade through all of them, just see that I’m not eligible for half of them, and the deadline has passed in most of the other ones. Somebody needs to work on this, it’s ridiculous. I saw it on Sharktank, and thought I’d give it a try. Lori Greiner, get ur stuff together, this is terrible!
  • Loading problem

    By SharkTank456
    I downloaded this a few hours ago and I filled out the application with my name my gender etc, and I waited it for load scholarships for an hour and a half and I’m still waiting. I’ve been looking for scholarships for weeks so I can start applying and got no luck. I thought maybe this app would help. Please fix this issue or I’m going to end up deleting the app.
  • Doesn’t even open. Waste of time.

    By x111
    Major tech issues here. I was able to make an account but it stopped there...Scholly, if you’re going to charge $2.99 per month please make sure that you’re app works instead of making people waste their time.....go get some tech help.
  • Don’t waste your time

    By a grad student who is annoyed
    The app request for you to include your personal information (e.g. level of education), so it can narrow the search. Unfortunately, you can include anything in your profile and you will get the same results (thousands), which majority you won’t qualify for. Google is a better source and it’s free!!!

    By doi#2
    A waste of time unless you want to pay $2.99 a month and not figure it out until you finish and waste a good 30 minutes you will never get back.:)
  • There is no free version!

    By Smileyshelby
    No free version, meaning you MUST pay the $2.99. Wish it stated that instead of me spending time filling out my profile and then showing me nothing. You will not see any scholarships unless you pay.
  • Waste of time: Not actually free to use

    By CaliforniaBorn1997
    If you keep skipping to pay for it for $2.99 a month they will STILL have you go through and fill everything out and make you go through a long list of stuff you’d qualify for just to tell you you HAVE to pay $2.99 a month to view any of the scholarship options or else you can only view advice from scholarship winners. So the app really isn’t free like you think it is and a huge waste of time filling stuff out until you figure that out in the end.
  • complete garbage

    By jill67900
    waste of time energy and money
  • Amazing

    By DatBlackie
    If you are a student download this app.
  • Complained about crashing and they fixed it!

    By hshahvduxhsnb34
    Obviously I probably wasn’t the only person to complain but it’s nice to know they listen!
  • I need up with my subscription plan

    By damephil007
    I recently subscribed for a month but it keeps on saying you now have full access to the app but I don’t actually have access to see the scholarships. I need help urgently!
  • You have to pay to get the results

    By Nicole246J
    I spent like an hour thoroughly going through the list of things to check off and when I got to the end it said I have to pay to get what the app is made to do which they do not tell you when you start. They still give you essay suggestions but what’s the point of a scholarship app when you need to pay in the first place to even see your scholarships.
  • Paid for monthly service and all program does is crash

    By wvugirl92
    Purchased the monthly service, entered all my info and now all I get is app will load and then immediately crash. Now that my personal information is entered in the app and I have no way to remove it, feeling as tho this app is a scam.
  • 👎👎👎

    By No Scholarship Guy
    3 dollars monthly haven’t got scholarship uninstalled and then realized it still charges me bc I forgot to cancel subscription last year after I uninstalled :((( whoops
  • Don’t bother

    By Xbox superstar
    Yet another app that requires personal information for no reason. Sad that the internet has devolved to this state.
  • infuriating!!

    By ReviewsbyBRM
    i went through this whole thing to set up my profile only to find out that in order to see ANY scholarships you HAVE to pay the $2.99 a month!! waste of time.
  • I need the money

    By Therealyungthug
    I am applying for these scholarships and hope to get at least a few.
  • Not Happy

    By xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxcxcxx
    My account keeps getting automatic monthly charges that I thought I had canceled, but it renewed somehow. Now, when I go into the app it’s telling me to purchase their monthly subscription, which I’m already paying for but can’t access and I can’t find where to contact anyone to get it canceled. VERY ANNOYING, plus my daughter used it and didn’t receive one scholarship!!! Totall rip-off
  • Monthly Subscription? No thanks!

    By David Kirby
    I’m not going to pay $2.99/month for something I can get free elsewhere.
