Over 800 Comal ISD students have now created profiles on Scholly, an easy-to-use website that helps students find and apply for college scholarships.

“Scholly is a scholarship clearing house for non-local scholarships,” said Tiffany Newkirk, Comal ISD Coordinator for Counseling. “This is just one more barrier we are removing for our students to make the scholarship application processes easier.”

Scholly also provides guidance and support along the path toward college scholarships.
“The district has paid for students to have access to this application process so we can increase the opportunities for our students,” Newkirk said. “Our goal is that Scholly will help our graduates find the scholarship funds they needs to reach their dreams.”
Comal ISD faculty members are currently assisting every sophomore and junior during course registration, talking about just how easy it is to register and create a Scholly profile. They also talked to students about the process of finding scholarships through Scholly. This is something that will be repeated at course registrations in the future.
Scholly.com, which boasts it “helps scholarships find you,” is based in Philadelphia and was founded in 2014 by Christopher Grey – then a student – who won 1.3 million in scholarships.
Scholly is endorsed by the Coca Cola Scholars Foundation and the Gates Millennium Scholars Foundation.
