Perfect Scholarship Website!

This is the perfect website if your looking for good scholarships, college options, and more! Excellent resource!

NEW virtual college tours given!

Cappex (now Appily) has free virtual college tours. I wish they had one for every school; they are very helpful in invisioning the college campus!

very helpful

This website is so helpful for college resources. The scholarships are especially helpful. I'm very grateful for this website.

Great for indecisive thinkers

As an indecisive person, Cappex has helped me a lot with comparing colleges and being able to weigh the pros and cons.

Great Source for scholarships and college searches

This is a great source to use when looking for colleges and scholarships!! I would definitely recommend this to high school students just starting to do research on colleges and for seniors and college students looking for scholarships. This is really a great way to start seeing what’s out there and it’s overall very easy to use!

Easy to use

Helpful in finding schools that fit your needs and offers a large variety of scholarships.

Good Yet Lots of Emails

It is a good college readiness and college website but there various emails from random colleges, and many from colleges you aren't interested inl.

Emails on emails

Good if you're a high school student trying to find a college. I'm a college student who is happily at my dream school and don't intend to transfer, so not their target audience. If you sign up with them prepare for LOTS of emails from random colleges. However, they do have lists of scholarships which I still browse occasionally. Solid 3/5.

They will Spam You

I gave Cappex/Appily my email address through and they have filled my inbox with emails from random universities that I have never expressed interest in attending. Probably don't use.

Okay resource

I learned about the application procedure and applied for scholarships via Cappex, which is now known as Appily. I had trouble finding a lot of the information I was looking for on their website since it is a little tricky to use. It doesn't help that email verification is the only method of sign-in. Regardless, Cappex/Appily sends a lot of emails, and managing the ensuing mess can be bothersome.
