Hey there Product Hunt! I first came up with the idea for the site out of my own experiences applying for scholarships while getting ready to go to college. After years as a technology entrepreneur, I put together a team to create ScholarshipOwl and fix the problems I had experienced in the system, which included trouble identifying scholarships I qualified for and a heavy time investment to apply for the scholarships I did find on my own. Would love to hear your feedback!

@kennysandorffy how well/ does it work for fellowships (PhD)?
Kenny SandorffyMaker@kennysandorffy · Scholarshipowl
@joelle_writes @kennysandorffy hi Joelle we have a good amount of Scholarships also for PhD students. i would say think that you should be able to register to about 100 scholarships. Good Luck, and let us know if how it went!

Wish I had this in college, would be in moderate debt instead of insane debt... I still love you Boston University, but damn you're expensive! Rooting for you Kenny and ScholarshipOwl to change lives, lift people up and help eliminate the debt problems students face coming out of college.

Hi Jeremy, Thanks for your question. First of all I must tell you that I think Scholly is a pretty good and well-designed app. Scholly is a directory presenting the user with a list scholarships he may then apply for himself one at a time. They do it in a nice and user friendly way for sure! ScholarshipOwl on the other hand takes the application process two steps further, by automating the whole application process. A user coming to ScholarshipOwl doesn't just get a list of scholarship matches. ScholarshipOwl saves tons of time, automates the application and creates a unified application process. We ask all the questions once up front in one single registration process and save the need of going to hundreds of scholarships one by one and entering similar information over and over again. ScholarshipOwl applies the student to those scholarships automatically sparing the user a lot of time and headache through advanced technology while protecting the users privacy. Many scholarships can be applied to monthly and ScholarshipOwl also allows users to resubmit applications over and over again with a single click. Hope that answers your question.

Love the idea behind this product. But curious: how is this different than Scholly?

I just bought the one-month membership for my girlfriend, who is about to start grad school and has been wading through the complicated scholarship process. Will report back whether or not we got our $29's worth!
