Through GrantMe, Jillian won four entrance scholarships (Western, Laurier, UofOttawa, Carleton) with a total of $22,000 in scholarships! In the fall, Jillian is going to Carleton through her entrance scholarship, worth $13,500!

Overcoming Struggle

Jillian’s biggest struggle when applying to scholarships was self-doubt.

“I had seen so many students through GrantMe and through my own school who had won big scholarships and had gotten into all the schools that they wanted to get into. It made me doubt myself a lot and I was really intimidated”.

To overcome this, Jillian attributes her success to organization, the support of her family and friends, and the GrantMe team. The GrantMe feature that she found most useful was the unlimited support. When she felt like she was struggling, she reached out to GrantMe, who immediately scheduled her with 1-on-1 check-ins about her scholarships and advice to effectively apply.

GrantMe’s Role

GrantMe helps its students win by keeping in mind “The Scholarship System”. To learn more about this, check out our video on how you can win scholarships to get into your top-choice school, and graduate debt-free!
