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.
Scholly Search is proud to be 100% ad free. The app is supported by a small subscription, available at $34.99 per year, $24.99 per 6-months or $4.99 per month. We offer a 3-day free trial for the annual and 6-month subscriptions. Payment will be charged to your Apple ID account at the confirmation of purchase. 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 of $34.99 or the 6-month subscription of $24.99. 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 ($34.99 for annual, $24.99 for 6-months, $4.99 for monthly) unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. The account will be charged ($34.99 for annual, $24.99 for 6-months, $4.99 for monthly) for renewal within 24-hours before the end of the current period.
We update the Scholly app as often as possible to make sure your scholarship matching experience is even better. Here is an important improvement you’ll find in the latest update:
- Updates to our scholarship apply experience.

Ratings and Reviews
Great idea and easy to use App. We justified paying the monthly fee of $3 for Scholly, as it appears to weed out many of the sweepstakes/scam scholarships found on other sites like FastWeb. Also, there are some opportunities listed in Scholly that we did not find anywhere else. However, as we go through the Scholly list generated after completing a profile, we have come across a couple that are listed as available, but when we actually link into the application website for a given scholarship, the company is no longer offering it. Wondering how frequently Scholly is verifying/updating their list?
Con: No reply when an e-mail was sent in regards to a possible technical issue. Zero response.... disappointing.
Scholly developers.... are you there? E-mail sent over two weeks ago.
I’m a student. Do you really think I can afford to PAY to find scholarships ??
I’m really confused by this app...I was so excited to come across a platform that helps match students with scholarship opportunities! However, as a student struggling to finance an education...I cannot afford to pay a monthly fee for a service that *might* or might not help (as many of the reviews suggest it has simply eaten their money with no results, anyway.) Doesn’t this seem counterintuitive, when the money spent on the monthly/annual fees could actually go toward financing one’s education itself??? Sort of funny to target a demographic clearly in need of funds but also make them pay out of pocket when the whole premise is that they likely can’t...not everyone has parents whose pockets they can reach into. I’m disappointed. I get that the developers have to make money to keep this running— if you charged a one-time, up front purchase fee rather than tricking people into downloading a free app that requires a paid subscription to access, you would honestly get enough active downloads/users to keep your app afloat (and improve its actual functionality.) You may think it’s not that deep, but this is a form of elitism, just reinforcing the idea that success on this front still has to be bought. You can’t imagine how disheartening that is.

Hello - Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We've always been focused on protecting users privacy. We don't sell data and don't sell ads so we support the app through a small subscription. We understand while some would disagree, but our goal is to do what's in the best interest of our users data.
Worst App ever-a total SCAM!
I downloaded this App and it never worked properly from hour one. Constant glitching, the app not opening or the app sometimes opened but my phone would freeze and all open apps would crash, my screen would go to the Home Screen and I’d have to give my phone a hard restart just to get the phone working again. I followed the directions on the Scholly website for IPhone users on how to cancel my subscription and it was canceled within days. When I go to my settings and click on my name it says my Scholly subscription was canceled in March of 2020. It’s now DECEMBER of 2020 and I just discovered on my bank statement that Scholly has been making unauthorized charges on my bank account EVERY MONTH for $7.99 since I canceled it back in MARCH! I sent Scholly an email, a direct message on both Twitter & Instagram and a private message on Facebook. I got a response from Facebook with a link to where Scholly claims I could cancel my subscription but it was just a broken link that took me nowhere. There is no 800 number to call. This company should be shut down completely, it’s a total disgrace and nothing more than a scam to make unauthorized monthly charges from your bank account with absolutely no way to stop them!
