Hi Everyone. I recently came accross this site grantme.ca. They are a company who connect scholarships offers to students. Has anybody heard or been part of GrantMe? because I wanna make sure that they aren't scammers before I sign up for it.

Also, any ideas on the price they charge to join?

I joined GrantMe last fall after seeing their ad on Instagram. They were such a huge help for me. They are absolutely not a scam. They gave me a customized list of scholarships that they assessed I was a good candidate for, almost all of which I had not found on the scholarship search engines I had been using. They then worked with me on all my applications, providing edits and feedback to help improve them.

I was also provided me with one-on-one interview coaching to help me prepare for the scholarship interviews that I had. They know what the selection committees are looking for in your essays and what the interview processes are like, so they can help you showcase your best self to put forward.

If you ask me, I will say don't join them.. their main goal is to make money off of you. Whether you get the scholarships or not is up to the work you end up putting in for yourself. Registering a free account online with Scholarships Canada and 99 scholarships is much better option.

I once tried them but they wanted all of my information like phone number, name and school. Why is this needed? I just want to learn how to get scholarships, but don't want my information out there.

they probably sell your info and that's how they pay for the scholarships

I have 2 friends that won scholarships with them and my sis applied but didn’t win any. It’s all about luck still.

I will say Its not a scam but the help they provide is not the best either. Their focal point is based on students that are in British Columbia or those applying to the uni of BC, maybe this is because their company is in BC. One thing for sure is- there are lots of applications that wont come out successful, but they only publish the successful ones on their website. However, scholarships offers from universities will always be your best bet because they are more legit and there is a high chance of you winning them.

Hmm university scholarships seems much more competitive though. Do you know the criteria universities follow in selecting the winners of their scholarships?

Most times, each universities provides their own criteria used in selecting the winner and I guess sometime they just pick randomly too but not sure.

How about 99 scholarships? I've tried applying for scholarships there for international student but the list they have doesn't change at all.

Scholarships Canada is still your best bet when it comes to searching for scholarships

I have read a lot of info on Schoolarhips when I were looking for university lat year and didn't heard about it, think that you can find a lot of really more profitable variants. I have found my on listsofscholarships. On this website there are all the best scholarships on almost all of specializations. Think that everyone can find here the ideal one for himself. And don't be afraid to make a mistake, you van to retry every year. Wish you good luck.

I went on to Grant Me’s website to find out more about their service. They collect a bunch of your personal information and then tell you that you need to have a video call with them to get more info about the scholarships you qualify for. OK, I was curious enough that I signed up for a video call to find out more about the scholarships my daughter might be eligible for. Soon after, I received a text to ask if there was another parent in charge of financial decision making and, if so, could they be present during the call. I told them that we weren’t making any decisions until we had all of our questions answered so I wasn’t going to commit to my husband being there for the call. They responded by asking what my questions were, so I asked what the service would cost. They (“Ali”) responded by saying the service costs $1495 for 5-year access to the program, but they guarantee $1500 in scholarships (not sure how they can do this, unless they are fronting the money for the guarantee). Ali then asked me if I had any more questions, which I did, so I responded with those. I received zero response from Ali after that and was then informed by my daughter that she received an email from Grant Me that our video call had been canceled. Really? If Grant Me isn’t a scam, they should be avoided due to terrible customer service. I feel that if I wasn’t willing to have my husband and I subjected to a potential “hard sell” that they weren’t interested in us. We’ve since looked at Scholarships Canada and it seems much more legit.

Hi there! We appreciate you sharing your experience and feedback. We're sorry to hear that your daughter's call was cancelled and you did not have a positive experience. This is not up to our standards and we have since improved our call confirmation process to ensure no student's call is cancelled and that all of your questions can be answered by our team. We have a $1500 guarantee because of the student success formula we've created that hundreds of our past students have used to win scholarships. We'd love to answer your questions and clear up any information you're wondering about. You can reach out to our Student Success team via email at support@grantme.ca with any questions/concerns!

Hi there! You're correct - our platform is a commitment and this means that it won't work for everybody. Students in our program apply to a minimum of 25 scholarships within a year, and this does take some work, but our team is here to support our students throughout their scholarship journey. We don't leave our students hanging and we're relentless when it comes to providing and improving the support we offer to students. You can also sign up for the free version of our platform, and check out the free resources we have on our blog and Youtube! :)
