Worth it if you’re motivated 4/5
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! 1/5
Despite entering a tremendous amount of information, the app was unable to match me.
Mostly good 4/5
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 1/5
Used it once received lousy results and cancelled same day, yet it charged my account for a year subscription three days later.
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 1/5
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! 4/5
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 1/5
As soon as downloaded it asks you to pay
Charging broke students? 1/5
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
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 1/5
Am sorry but I don’t think that I should pay money trying to obtain a scholarship.
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.
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.
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? 1/5
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 2/5
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 1/5
Pay to play. Deleted this garbage app immediately.
Not a good app 1/5
You have to pay to get actual scholarship matches. I would not recommend downloading it.
A mess! 1/5
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 1/5
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. 1/5
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 1/5
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!!!
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! 1/5
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 1/5
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 1/5
waste of time energy and money
If you are a student download this app.
Complained about crashing and they fixed it! 5/5
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 2/5
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 1/5
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 1/5
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 1/5
By Xbox superstar
Yet another app that requires personal information for no reason. Sad that the internet has devolved to this state.
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 5/5
I am applying for these scholarships and hope to get at least a few.
Not Happy 1/5
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! 1/5
By David Kirby
I’m not going to pay $2.99/month for something I can get free elsewhere.
Would give 5 stars but... 4/5
...this app shuts down like 20 times in a save session for scholarships. It’s kinda nuts. Uninstalled and reinstalled twice on iPhone X and keeps kicking me out when saving a matched scholarship. So frustrating!
Keep getting charged even though I cancelled my subscription 1/5
By Aren da
Buyer beware, can’t cancel your subscription. They keep charging you
Junk app 1/5
You pay 99 cents for stuff you can find online easily - and no scholarship matching.
To find scholarships it appears you need to pay $2.99 a month.
Cannot use this app. It’s extremely slow. I had to wait a few mins each time I set a parameter. Gave up and deleted the app
By India L.H.
The app crashes, & all of the scholarships are just contests, so there is no guarantee that you will get the scholarships. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS APP! I WANT A REFUND!!!
This app does help with scholarships but it crashes every time I try to save one or delete one that doesn’t apply to me. It is very annoying waiting for the app to reload since it crashed
iPhone Xs Max crash 3/5
Trying to apply for everything I can, however it seems to be having a very difficult time on my new xs max.
Hoping this will be fixed very soon as I am getting close to deadlines for scholarships.
Again, amazing idea and well worth the 2.99, just hope this gets fixed ASAP.
Worthless don’t waste the money 1/5
My son went to college this fall. We signed up for Scholly at the end of his junior year and subscribed until last March. It was a waste of $3 per month. He was a 4.0 student captain of the cross country team. Section chair in orchestra, supporting lead in the school musical. He was on the mock trail team. Yet he never had any serious scholarship to apply for. It was all basically contests and scholly scholarships. Waste of good money.
Good but has tech problems. 1/5
I recently downloaded Scholly thinking that it would be a very easy to use app. However, it’s done nothing but kick me out of the app and been loading very slowly.
Crashes whenever I try to save a scholarship.. 3/5
By The creator💁
It is a good app but not being able to save the scholarships you find is not very helpful.
This app is extremely effective. It’s easy to navigate, consistently up to date, and has a large selection of scholarships to apply to.
That being said, here’s how it could improve—
1. I would love to see a way to report inaccuracies or irrelevance of a scholarship. For example, if I am a high school sophomore looking for scholarships, I likely won’t be enrolled in a school yet, so I don’t want to see scholarships with that requirement yet. Scholly does a great job of this for the most part, but for the rare times the scholarship is irrelevant or misrepresented, it would be nice to have a report button.
2. What’s a Scholly Score? Maybe I missed the explanation, but I still don’t know what that is. Could you put a brief description under the scrolling “advice” place on the dashboard?
Overall— great app! I definitely recommend it to scholarship-hunters.
Update: some scholarships explicitly require the student to be enrolled in a college/university. It would be great if people who have not been accepted yet could filter out those scholarships. Perhaps add a “accepted to college” part in the profile?
Isn’t free 1/5
You go through all the steps then they demand a $2.99 subscription to actually see any scholarships that match you. Just put the app up for $2.99 instead of pretending it’s free
