Chris Gray


No more finding scholarships. Let the scholarships find you.

8 years ago, Christopher Gray was on the verge of not attending college. Coming from a low-income background, he couldn’t afford the insane price tags associated with most American universities.
Hundreds of scholarship applications and $1.3 million in winnings later, Chris was headed to school.
After realizing first-hand how horrible it is to apply to so many scholarships, Chris realized something: many scholarships go unnoticed and un-awarded, and students blindly apply to tons of scholarships that aren’t specific to their profile.
Scholarships can’t find applicants, and students can’t find the right scholarships for them.
By building Scholly, Chris set out on a mission to help students easily find scholarships for college.
With over 1 million users and over $70 million in scholarships raised, it’s safe to say that Chris has delivered on that mission.
On top of the countless students whose lives have been changed because of Scholly, Chris has been recognized as 2015 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year for Social Entrepreneurship, 2016 Forbes 30 Under 30, Oprah’s Inaugural Super Soul 100 Honorees, and a place on Oprah’s list of her favorite people.
