Jesse Williams, devoted activist, is the newly tapped brand ambassador for Scholly, the mobile app that matches students with untapped resources to finance higher education.
...he raised $1.3 million in scholarships to attend college — but finding the programs and awards required a lot of digging. That’s why he founded Scholly.
The well-known actor was moved to action once he heard the inspiring story of the company’s founder, Christopher Gray.
Gray states that he raised $1.3 million in scholarships to attend college — but finding the programs and awards required a lot of digging. That’s why he founded Scholly.
The social enterprise mobile app was such a hit that he earned a spot on Shark Tank where he ultimately made big deal with super entrepreneurs/hosts Daymond John and Lori Greiner. To date the app has helped students identify, apply and win over $50 million in college scholarships and grants.
Now Williams wants to help bring the resources to the masses, so he’s signed on to the company’s advisory board and as Scholly’s Chief Brand Ambassador.
Williams shares Gray’s excitement about the joint venture. "I'm proud to announce that I’m joining the Scholly team in our mutual pursuit to help more young Americans pay for college," he says. "There is no substitute for equal access — there is no substitute for a quality education. Scholly helps us get there, together."
