This is a scholarship search app available for Apple and Android products. You must purchase the app, download, and install on a compatible device. You are then able to search for scholarships that you can apply for. This app was created by a student dubbed the “million dollar scholar” who applied for 70 scholarships and was awarded 34 of them, totaling 1.3 million. The scholarships were enough to pay for his bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, and doctorate degree plus living expenses.

Students may also want to seek out scholarships and grant opportunities by checking with local church, employers, civic associations, and other organizations that they, their parents, or other immediate family members may belong to.
