Going Merry’s new, free scholarships app helps students find and apply for scholarships, to pay for college.
Enjoy personalized scholarship matching, auto-filled applications. It’s the perfect mobile companion to the scholarship website already trusted by 300,000 students. We have scholarships for high school students (of all grade levels), college undergraduate students, and graduate students.
What makes Going Merry different?
1. Better scholarship search & filters
Personalized scholarship matching: You fill out a brief profile, and then we match you to scholarships you’re eligible for. That means less browsing and sifting through scholarships that aren’t applicable to you.
Favorite or ignore: You can favorite scholarships to create a shortlist of scholarships and their deadlines. Or you can hit “ignore” to a matched scholarship to never see it again.
Time estimates: Based on the number of questions and essay prompts, we’ve created an application completion time estimate for you. Can filter or sort based on this.
2. Easy scholarship applications, without the redirects
Direct Apply - You can apply directly to many of the listed scholarships, right from the Going Merry website or app
Auto-filled applications: We pre-fill application with the information you’ve already given us.
Bundled applications: We’ve combined scholarships with similar essay prompts, so with one submission, you can apply to multiple scholarships simultaneously.
Save documents: Save transcripts, standardized test scores, letters of recommendation, and essays, so you can easily re-use them across applications.
Multi-platform: Prefer to search on mobile, but do the applications on a computer? No worries - Our Going Merry desktop platform has got you covered, no matter your preferred device.
3. Clear application tracking
Applications in process: See your favorited and draft applications in one place. We’ll even send you email reminders a few days before scholarship deadlines.
Submitted application status: Check your dashboard for the status of any submitted applications.
4. Data protection
The only time your private information is shared with third parties is when you submit a scholarship application. We then forward your application (with your details) to the scholarship provider. We are committed to NEVER sharing your information otherwise.
Winning scholarship award money can help you fill gaps left by financial aid, reduce your student loan debt, and make college or grad school more affordable.
But don’t take our word for it.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is amazing and makes applying for scholarships easier than ever! When I first started I knew nothing about scholarships, but I learned so much through this app! It helps you out when you don’t know what something means by clicking on the question mark icon. Some scholarships you must go to an external site, but a lot of them you can do all the work in the app! (I like to do this part on my laptop on their website for faster typing). Thank you for making this stressful process extremely effortless!
If you don’t have money for school and don’t want to depend on just FAFSA you definitely try Going Merry. I work to take care of my wife and kids all while attending school. It’s hard sometimes and I need a little help no matter where it comes from. I just want to give my kids the life I didn’t have. I don’t want them to ever have to wonder where their next meal will come from or where they will sleep at night. They are my life and I will do my best to give them the best with the help of Going Merry.
Super Fast, Easy and even Fun
I got this app as a last resort to apply for some scholarships as a high school senior impacted by the coronavirus. I was able to apply for 16 scholarships in one day by using essays I had already written and writing a few other ones. This app is SO organized and you can find everything super easily. They even have a bundle feature so you can apply for 7 scholarships all at once by just writing a short essay that covers all of them! I love this app and would recommend it to anyone.
