What counselors are saying
College, Career & Military Readiness,
Franklin High School, Texas
Going Merry is a game-changer. FAFSA® and scholarships in one place. Our financial aid application rates have increased significantly.
Director of College Counseling
KIPP San Jose Collegiate, California
My students loved Going Merry. They applied to 5x as many scholarships using it and were able to spend much more time on the important parts of applications rather than the admin.
Counselor & Department Chair,
Holt High School, Missouri
I've been coordinating 35 local scholarships for 19 years, and this is the first time it's gone so smoothly. Having our local scholarships online has improved the application process for everybody. Thanks Going Merry!
