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 college scholarships through grit, sweat, and hustle. In realizing how broken and time-consuming the scholarship search process was, he created Scholly Search to make things much easier.
How does Scholly make it easy?
* Customized Scholarship Search: Get matched with scholarships for college and graduate school tailored just to you.
* Scholly Scores: Review and choose the best scholarships to apply for based on their Scholly Score. The higher the Scholly Score, the stronger the match—which means better chances at more money!
* Easy Scholarship Tracking: Keep track of scholarship deadlines and track your application statuses, all in one place.
* Mobile & Desktop Access: Access scholarship opportunities anywhere, on the go, on all of your devices.
The best part is that with a Scholly membership, you’ll receive access to ALL of the amazing tools we offer to help students, including Scholly Editor, an AI-powered writing assistant, and Scholly Math, an AI-powered math solver that instantly interprets and provides step-by-step solutions to any math problem.

Ratings and Reviews
Pretty Good! Small Issues if Any
I noticed a lot of the reviews were from about a year ago so I thought I’d review the most recent version. I’ve been using it for a few months now and have found it incredibly helpful. The app runs smoothly and I’ve never had any crashes.
As for the scholarships, I haven’t won anything but then again, many scholarships take awhile to announce a winner so I’m still waiting on a few. Don’t expect to win and get scholarships awards very quickly. Also, the website said it wouldn’t include any type of “giveaway” or “sweepstake” style scholarships, but I see them on there all the time.
Unfortunately, they recently raised the price of their monthly subscription from $2.99 to $4.99. I normally wouldn’t mind, but it would be nice to at least send a courtesy email to subscribers. If you plan to continue using the service, a few other perks like an essay editor and math problem solver are on the Scholly website. I would recommend it to you if you’re going to be dedicated to applying for scholarships and use the other resources, but if not, there are plenty of free scholarship sources instead.
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.

I bought the app years a go but now expected to pay a monthly fee too
I bought the app when it first released. Because I paid for it I didn’t have to pay a monthly subscription. I left a comment/review saying as much. The developers reached out to me and offered me something in a link which I stupidly downloaded. Now I am out the cost of the price I paid before and they want me to pay a monthly or yearly fee... So my review went from 4 stars to 1 star, and I will no longer be using the service. Cheap, petty and completely disgusting that these people would force me to pay monthly when I put down money for the app before they charged money. Then finding out and tricking me into downloading a “patch” that forces me to pay for it monthly know.
I can no longer recommend this product. I work at a college financial aid office and I recommended this product to every student who came into my office for money. You’ve lost that free targeted marketing from me. I will from now on recommend students go elsewhere.
