New Scholly app matches students with scholarships

When it comes to paying for college, parents like Mike Grabiec start planning early.

"We worry about it," said Grabiec.

Grabiec has plenty of time to plan because his son is only 2. And, he's well aware there's a lot of resources to help to pay for college. In fact, he took full advantage of grants and scholarships himself when he attended. But, he knows firsthand it wasn't an easy process.

"There was a lot of time involved and a lot of applications to be filled out," he said.

But, now, there's an app for that. It's called Scholly.

Drexel University senior Christopher Grey developed the Scholly app to help students find scholarships. He recently appeared on Shark Tank, landing a deal with two sharks, FUBU founder Daymond John and Lori Greiner of QVC.

Grey says he was inspired to create the app after winning 34 scholarships himself worth 1.3 million dollars.

Since Grey appeared on Shark Tank in February, Scholly has been the #1 downloaded Education app. It costs 0.99 cents.

With just a few clicks of your information, the Scholly app matches you with scholarships - and the millions of dollars in unclaimed scholarship money out there - while upping the odds for parents and students who could use it.

"We're going to be using that, I'm sure," exclaimed Grabiec.
