College scholarships? There's an app for that.

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. 

There's a great piece on that tell's Gray's whole story. 

It's inspiring.
