ScholarshipOwl matches students to hundreds of scholarships and this new opportunity may help students decrease the amount of their student loans by sourcing and automatically submitting pertinent scholarship applications. The scholarship search site is dedicated to helping not just high school students, but undergraduate and graduate students, find and apply for many scholarships from various companies, brands, and organizations who are committed to helping fund higher education.

“The search process is complicated and too time-consuming for busy college students,” explains ScholarshipOwl founder Ken Sandorffy in the press release. “That’s why we built an engine that aggregates scholarships that are available at any given time and allows students to apply for them with a single application.”

ScholarshipOwl constantly scans the web for new scholarship offerings and opportunities and adds them to their database. Then, eligible students can easily and conveniently apply for those scholarships using the information already on file, saving students time and effort as all the scholarship information is gathered in one place and can be applied to using one application.

The site allows its users to save their answer responses and essays, which can then be reused for later applications so you don’t have to fill all your information in again. ScholarshipOwl uses each student’s birthday, gender, year of study, current or intended major, and various other parameters and background information to match their students with hundreds of available scholarships.

To date, ScholarshipOwl already has over 100,000 users and has matched each to 85-100 scholarships on average. The platform has received coverage from Forbes, GigaOm, TNW and others, and their amount of users is only increasing as students are eager to take on less debt and find more scholarships to help pay for college.
