What makes Going Merry different?

1. Personalized scholarship matching
Get applying faster. Less browsing and sifting through scholarships that aren’t applicable to you.

2. Easy, auto-filled scholarship applications
Apply directly to many of the listed scholarships, right from the Going Merry website or app. We’ll even pre-fill the application form with the information in your profile.

3. Bundled scholarships
We’ve combined scholarships with similar essay prompts, so you can apply to multiple scholarships with one form.

4. Your personas data is secure
We fully encrypt your data, and we never sell it to third parties.

5. Grants and financial aid too
Get matched to state grants you’re eligible for. Finally, compare your college financial aid offers using our analysis tool, to make the right financial choice.

But don’t take our word for it.

Its an ok app. I do appreciate the convenience of being able to find and work on scholarships in my free time between two jobs and school. I do wish it would save my filter preferences for my searches though because Ive been having trouble where an error pops up saying that something didnt load correctly and the only way i can find to fix it is to back out of the app and log back in. Ive tried refreshing the app, swaping between wifi and my data, waiting patiently, etc. So pros and cons.

Really like the app but it's not letting me actually go into the app at the moment. Everytime I log in a screen pops up that says "enter your student id..." I do just that, but then words pop up behind the screen that says "please enter university name.." I can't enter the app to do that! I've even entered it in on the computer to try and fix it and it's still not working.

Extremely predatory app that will ruthlessly violate your privacy because you're a desparate college kid. Im sorry but you will not find any financial aid here. The user interface is pretty obnoxious too, turning scholarships into a "game." To top it off, the scholarships it gives you are wildly inaccurate to your searches, you will have better luck even on Google. This whole app reeks of a corporation taking advantage of young people and giving them a cheap braindead product to keep them happy.
