Scholarship Opportunities

We are a company founded by Carnegie Mellon and Stanford graduates, who all relied on scholarships and other financial aid to pay for college. We make it easier for students to find and apply for scholarships and simpler for scholarship providers to create and manage them. We come together from different backgrounds and skill sets but share the same mission: to give every student truly equal access to life-changing education.
