And there's an even better story behind the app.
Drexel University junior Christopher Gray of Birmingham, Ala., didn't have money for college. So he applied for 34 scholarships and received $1.3 million in funding. That will more than fund his entire higher education career — through PhD! — and has left him with a little extra.
So he started a company and developed an app — Scholly — to help others find scholarships.
