We did a soft launch September 17, 2018 for select high school students at Booker T. Washington, Sheffield and Westwood. We have the ability to see the individual students, their ACT scores, their Grade Point Averages and so much more. The most important data is what has occurred since these initial students received free access to the Scholly platform through SchoolSeed. We pulled a report and here is the information as of September 30, 2018.
29 people have used the codes
● 100% are students, 0% are parents
● 97% are 13-17 years old, 3% are 18
● 35% are male, 65% are female
To date, these users in the City of Memphis have been matched with 110 scholarships, totaling over $1,117,200 in potential awards.
They are currently in the process of applying for, or have already applied to, 30 scholarships, totaling $348,500.
Once these students begin to win scholarships, we will have that data as well. This is a groundbreaking effort for our students in Memphis. This is just the beginning.
