The app is okay 3/5
My suggestion for improvement is to allow the app to daily or constantly add new possible scholarships to our matches. You are matched once and that’s it, so after you go through the scholarships you want, the app doesn’t re-match so it kind of seems pointless
Great site for finding scholarships to apply for.
Fraudulent App 1/5
I cancelled my subscription before this app was to charge my account. They charged my account anyway. Further, a lot of the scholarships are either old or do not even exist. Then they claim a warning that they do not even guarantee the authenticity of the scholarships. That is a cue that this app is a fraud. I will be contacting my credit card company.
Not worth it! 1/5
This app does not offer any new scholarships that you wouldn’t find on your own on free websites like Chegg, also even when I cancelled my account I was still being charged for months after but I wasn’t even able to log into my account. Not worth it!
Can’t login 1/5
I saw this on shark tank today in 2018 however I tried to create an account. It has been stuck in creating account for an hour and will not continue. I even tried closing it out and redoing it and again stuck for an hour.
Terrible App! Don’t waste your time! 1/5
By Ridiculous pricing change
We subscribed to the scholly app 8 months ago and have applied for many, many scholarships. We haven’t heard anything back from a single one of them and feel like it has been a waste of our money and time. We would give it zero stars if we could. Also, the app seems impossible to cancel as we have tried several times and continue to be charged. Very frustrating! Don’t waste your time on this app!
An absolute utter disappointment. I was excited to find something to help with my scholarship search. After taking a fair amount of time to fill in my profile I went on my search. I was greeted by a banner stating that you have to pay monthly for this service. I’m searching for scholarships do you really think I have the money to pay for a membership monthly? I would rather pay for the app and have free use of the service.
Save your time and go get a scholarship book from the library 1/5
This app is just slightly better than all of the scholarship websites, in that it has all the same scholarships that are just a marketing opportunity for the companies that offer them, and it hasn’t matched a single relevant scholarship to me. It rated a scholarship for people with lymphoma as a 4/10 for me, even though I don’t qualify. I haven’t seen a single scholarship that is related to my degree, even though I spent the time to thoroughly fill out my profile. I’ve had better luck in 2018 going through scholarship books at the library to find scholarships related to my degree than I have on any website or app. They are all the same.
Not a fan 2/5
I was so excited to be a part of this new app in a new way to search for scholarships.
I though that the monthly $2.99 charge would produce some results so I was willing to pay to have some success. However the charges kept coming but with no indication that application was received or indication of status.
It’s Good, but has Tech Problems 3/5
By The Ravin Reviewer
Yes, u do have to pay $2.99 a month in order to apply to scholarships however I personally feel the benefits out weight the cost. It gives u easy access to these scholarships websites and if u consistently apply it will be worth it. My only complaint is that every time that I delete a matched scholarship the app crashes, this gets very frustrating at times. So I do wish the developer would fix the problem to. Otherwise I think it is a good app that will give access to your educational needs.
Good idea, but needs some work 3/5
The concept of this is fantastic. But there are little things that make it not worth $2.99 a month. When you try to delete an option it asks you why and when you select it it says it will be removed but it doesn’t remove it. A few times it actually deleted the option below it instead. It also gave me several options for African American and Indian scholarships when I am neither and have neither on my profile. The point of this and why it is a paid for subscription is because it is supposed to weed out the majority of what you are not eligible for. But out of the options it gives me I am only eligible for about half
Mixed feelings 3/5
This app is cool that they have so many random scholarships but I have applied to thousands of them and I have not heard back from a single one
I signed up, filled out all the info, checked several category boxes to generate results, and... nothing. Not a single scholarship listed. It gave me a few essays to read as inspiration I guess, but not a single lead on a scholarship. I guess you have to pay for anything to show up, but I’m wary of spending any money for it to return without results again. Is this really the result I should be getting?
I’ve found plenty of scholarships to apply for on my own, so I guess I’ll have to keep doing things the hard way.
Saw this app on shark tank. I fell in love with idea but I soon found that the app keeps crashing and everything says it loading. Didn’t even bother paying for it because I read some reviews and saw recent negative comments about it. Would not recommend but I loved the idea.
Trash app. 1/5
Wasted 10 minutes signing up and picking scholarship categories only to find out I have to pay $2.99 a month.
Trash app. Use Fastweb.com instead.
Had it for the first time it launched when it got updated well 1/5
It’s just like fast web just with some added steps. If you really want to charge 2.99 you should improve your app to hold more info for the potential applicants of scholarships. Also make it where scholarships are true worth investing the money otherwise it’s another crap overhyped app that takes your money and runs. That’s what it is but hey its more sad if you don’t pay for it because it does noting. At all.
I can’t pay $2.99 for an app! 1/5
You cannot apply for scholarships until you pay for a monthly $2.99 subscription. I have been having such a difficult time finding scholarships since my family is low income, and I was so excited for this app! However, I cannot use it because I am a high school student with no money and a family who lives paycheck to paycheck.
That being said, I know the developer needs money. What about having ads, or allowing for some lower reward (maybe less than $2000) scholarships to be available for those of us who can’t pay? Or maybe each scholarship costs $0.05 or something and the developer can make money that way. At least we would know what we are paying for.
Great app but I’m a broke college student that TRIED to cancel premium 1/5
I tried to cancel the premium service over 4 months ago and have still being billed for the service I’ve tried to cancel. I demand I be refunded that money that could’ve gone towards food for this starving college student.☹️
GREAT app! 5/5
This app is really helpful, esp for people who have don't know how to find scholarships and their chance of winning them.
Create a fake email for all the spam 1/5
By DK Virginia
This is absolutely the WORST app. All it is, is you clicking on links to create new accounts with multiple organizations that send you spam. Complete waste of time.
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.
Free app that does nothing 1/5
“Free app” if you want some space used in your phone, you need a membership for the app to actually be useful
App crashes 1/5
The App crashes when I’m trying to sign up .
won’t work 1/5
when i press “APPLY HERE” nothing happens ?? it’s like this for all of the scholarships.
Can’t cancel 1/5
According to the app, I have a permanent subscription. I can’t cancel with iTunes OR the app because it doesn’t recognize that it was a subscription. Didn’t notice I was being charged monthly instead of the original 1-time payment of $2.99 when I first downloaded the app. It’s been about a year now.
So the app doesn’t actually do what it says 1/5
I set everything up and then, surprise, to actually see any scholarships you have to pay $2.99 a MONTH! Why make this app free when the ONE thing it does is behind a paywall? THIS IS A DIRTY TRICK.
Don’t delete 2/5
I had this app a few months ago and I liked it, so I paid for it. However, when I redownloaded, it asked me to pay again. I’m not paying an additional $3 when I already bought it.
Very easy to use 5/5
Helpful and very easy to use. Just beware that the scholarships you apply to don’t put you in never ending loop of “scholarship sites”
I can’t afford $3 2/5
At first it appears like a free app. So if you’re not interested in paying, don’t waste time to fill out all your information. And for those thinking that $3 isn’t too bad, keep in mind that it’s $3 every month
Definitely NOT worth it! 1/5
By someone just trying to help
There are so many other places and sites the provide services just like this one for FREE! The only thing it’s actually useful for is keeping track of the ones you said you applied to and clicked a button in the app saying you did which you can just do in your notes. The “Scholly Score” or whatever it’s called to show how much you match for a scholarship changes by the second and ends up going back to 3 for pretty much every scholarship. If you want something like this, I suggest a site called Fastweb
So excited 3/5
By Teen fairy
I just recently downloaded the app (like literally hours ago) so I could get a head start I searching for scholarships so I can afford to go to one of my dream schools. I was so excited to use it, but when I went to look at scholarships it brought me to settings
I don’t know if this is a bug or a glitch or what. Just thought it was weird that every time I clicked on “Scholarships” it brought me to “Settings.”
In theory this is going to be an amazing app, I just can’t use it until this is fixed
App doesn’t work 1/5
App doesn’t work. I just get a picture of a dog on a red background. The circle just spins like it is trying to open or execute but it never does.
Your app is running EXTREMELY slowly! You need to do something...maybe use a cloud provider that can easily scale with your business for the equipment. Or do something to the app/software to improve performance. Or figure out how to improve processing of the purchase.
This is really bad.
Won't load. 1/5
I'm a highschool student looking for scholarships. After hearing about this app on Shark Tank I was very excited. But for some reason my app won't load. I'm very disappointed.
Frustrating App 1/5
As of 0053 (standard mountain time) I cannot write in the “resources” section. Glad I didn’t pay the $2.99.
Looking for scholarships. This is an amazing app they have a variety of scholarships to choose from. Recommended to everyone looking for an opportunity to move forward in life and go to school.
Not helpful 1/5
Wish you could filter for easy to apply essays. Some people can’t write essays all day long so being able to apply for quick entry essays would be nice. I applied for many scholarships and of course didn’t receive any. The concept is nice but it hasn’t helped me pay to college at all.
Merit based 3/5
Annoying how they force you to select merit based scholarships.
This app is so incredible. I am pretty resourceful in finding scholarships, but this app introduced me to a whole new realm of scholarships I never knew existed. I know that people automatically get suspicious when having to pay for anything and ESPECIALLY when it’s for scholarships. However, as someone who has already applied for over 30 scholarships through Scholly, I can tell you it is worth every penny.
By A frustrated observer
This is no better than the free apps/services you can get online. It matches with scholarships that my student does not qualify for and does not show scholarships that are obvious matches. Whats more, the “match”
score keeps changing and there is no way to sort on the scores. It seems like the match scores are random as they make no sense.
There are too many “junk” matches to sort through.
There is much to be improved with this app as it is a great idea.
Rip off 2/5
Created my profile but was not allowed to see my matches until I paid a subscription fee.
Every bad. The app keeps crashing and every time I click “scholarships” it takes me to setting.
Lifesaver of an App 4/5
I saw this app on Shark Tank and I had to look it up right away. Unfortunately my financial aid had failed to go through my Junior year of college so I needed scholarships as soon as possible. This app makes it as easy as 1,2,3. I would give this 5 stars but the app keeps crashing when I delete a scholarship that has passed its deadline. I’m not sure what the issue is. Other than that, wonderful app.
Not worth it 1/5
A lot of apps provide scholarships with having a monthly fee. Most of the apps do have a monthly fee just unlock scholarships that give a high dollar amount back. This app is pointless without spending the fee every month. If you are fine with spending $3.00 a month to apply then this app is fine. I have multiple apps that I do not have to pay for that can do the same thing.
Very good concept, and I’m excited to use it, but I have two issues with it. One is you are unable to view any scholarships at all without paying. If you do not pay, you’re able to fill out a profile, read a few sample essays, and view approximately four scholarship tips. Two, during the profile setup stage, some factors were repeated or phrased strangely, which was slightly confusing. However, I’m interested in how it works if you pay for it.
Crashes continuously, SLOW!!!!! 1/5
I saw this air on Shark Tank. I loved the idea, and am pursuing going back to school myself. Being a former foster youth, female business owner, as well as a veteran on the military - figured this would be a wonderful platform to find a lot of scholarships...
Nope. I opted for the $2.99 monthly charge, and figured it would be a smooth running app. Looks like whatever $$ was put in is long gone, and they are no longer updating the app. Not ONE scholarship was generated!! Not only that, the app crashes 8 times in the first 20 min trying to set up my profile!! And it’s was EXTREMELY SLOW!! So slow that for each block I tried to fill my would lock itself in the wait time it to to enter in information.
Bottom line, save your $$. This app doesn’t work as it was designed to do so - and I’m hoping that $2.99 I spent goes to fixing this for future students who are in need. As is, this was a disappointment and DO not pay $$.
Not worth the time and effort and payment 1/5
Most of what the search engine provides are random drawings disguised as scholarships
Change In Currency 3/5
This app seems like a great idea, but there is no setting to change the currency. For instance the money value the app says “£” while in the US I use “$”. I could simply convert the numbers listed in another currency by an online calculator but I would like to know the exact value I could potentially get from each scholarship.
App does not work 4/5
I have the app and it just loads forever without doing anything. I have tried everything. Killing the app, deleting and and getting it again. I switched to the website for now.
Why a one star 1/5
I know you read it all before the is 2.99$. I can’t pay for that what would make you think the a high schooler or college student. Would have a enough money to pay for that. I need food, I need to eat, I need to keep the light on and I help pay bills. I want a good paying scholarship to I have a chance to go to college. My parents aren’t rich or financially well so a scholarship is what I need. I just started a job to help them out. I am not gonna waste my money on this. Something that I can search up for free. Yes, it will take me hours but hey it free.
And it useless with not paying your “ Best essays” are just not good. It good point but do you really think that someone is going need know point on “what I did last summer “ really? I can look that up and don’t get me started on the application part it frustrated and annoyed me.
In conclusion, if you want pay that 2.99$ for it I say decide for yourself.
