CommonBond Scholly College Scholarship
Have you heard about the brand new $10,000 CommonBond Scholly College Scholarship?
Brought to you by CommonBond student loans and Scholly, a wonderful college scholarship app, this is a seriously EASY way to win money for school.
Here are the details:
- Applications accepted from Feb. 15 to April 15
- $10,000 scholarship award
- Open to college-bound high school seniors and current college students
- Students required to be 18 and older, but parents may apply for their students
- NO ESSAY requirement
- NO financial need requirement
- NO minimum GPA
- Quick easy scholarship application
Winning Tips: This is essentially a scholarship contest, or random drawing, BUT someone has to win and the application literally takes less than 30 seconds. Students can earn additional chances to win by referring their friends. A dedicated scholarship email like I describe here is a MUST for this type of scholarship, as there will probably be student loan and other college-related companies using the email list compiled by CommonBond and Scholly.BONUS: Get your FREE download of my 10 BEST COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP TIPS right here
The winner will be announced via email on April 25 and that lucky student has 3 days to respond and accept the scholarship money, or another winner will be selected. Students need to check their scholarship emails regularly, as I have seen many scholarships go unclaimed when not accepted in time. Don’t let that happen to you or your student!
Parents, you can partner with your student and help them keep up with important scholarship emails.

UPDATE: As of February 2018, the Scholly Scholarship is no longer offered. I will update this post if it once again becomes available to students. ~ Monica Matthews
Not all of the messages have been doubtful, however. This is from a mom whose daughter recently won a very large scholarship drawing:
Monica Matthews’ advice is right on the mark! My daughter was just the grand prize winner of over $10,000 for college! She entered by filling out a brief housing survey and she WAS the winner chosen at random. Of course she hasn’t won every scholarship she has applied for – long or short applications. But it is absolutely worth persistence – keep trying! Thank you how2winscholarships for your ongoing encouragement and pearls of wisdom! – B.G., Happy mom of a University of Toledo freshman
