Scholly — the award-winning mobile app that has helped over 2.5 million students and families find over $100 million in scholarships — announces the award recipients of its latest partnership, the Financial Freedom $100,000 scholarship, with 25-year-old entrepreneur, investor, author and former Morehouse College student, Bryce Thompson. Thompson awarded his first $100,000 in scholarships in January 2021.
The Financial Freedom $100,000 Scholarship was designed not only to help ease the burden of college tuition, but also the many financial burdens that come from pursuing entrepreneurship. With many Americans getting back on their feet after the pandemic completely altered most industries, Thompson and Scholly wanted to support students and other applicants in need.
After receiving thousands of applications, five HBCU students and five other candidates were selected and awarded $10,000 each with a surprise Zoom announcement by Thompson himself, according to a press release.
