Drexel students design app to simplify scholarship searches
Two Drexel University students are two-thirds of the team that designed a new app to make it easier for students to find scholarship money.
The Scholly app is the work of Drexel students Christopher Gray and Nick Pirollo and Amherst College student Bryson Alef, Drexel News Blog reports.
The app serves as a one-stop shop for high-school and college students looking to find scholarships they can use to fund their education.
“There is not a lot of awareness about what’s available,” Gray, who reportedly was awarded more than $1 million in scholarships, told the website. “I knew that there should be a faster and easier way to search for and find scholarships.”
Scholly is available for $0.99 at the App Store and on Google Play.
“The months it takes students to look for scholarships have been turned to minutes,” Gray said.
