How do you imagine days upon enrolling in a college?
First, you would typically attend student orientation. Then, once the lectures started, which you knew virtually nothing about beforehand, you’d have to figure out where the counselors’ offices are, what the hours were, and go there to have a chat (first standing in front of the office and waiting, of course, depending on the number of other students visiting).
Ah, it’s nice to think about the days of yore as we take our smartphones and look into the new app for students – ZeeMee – and a different, fresh way to approach campus life.
Think of ZeeMee as the coolest digital hangout on campus. Except it stretches across 1K+ college communities and 60K+ high schools.
It’s a social network specifically designed for students to exchange information, share interests, connect and/or just fill the time chatting and posting.
You will meet new friends and hear all about the ins and outs of student life: the lectures and lecturers, the requests and recommendations, and, among other things – scholarships.
We at ScholarshipOwl thought this was a cool idea and, being a part of student life – decided to hop on board and partner up with ZeeMee – so that our existing and new users could get together, exchange info, review each others’ essays and communicate with us.
How to Research Scholarships?
What does this mean for all the people using the app?
Through our dedicated channel within ZeeMee, we will communicate with students and offer them the latest on scholarships: recommendations, tips & tricks, and essay reviews.
We are aware that for a lot of students, scholarships are a big deal. Also, few of them have time to waste with all the things going on in their lives. And they still want to graduate with the least amount of debt possible.
After all, that is the driving force behind ScholarshipOwl – to offer a no-nonsense, streamlined, fast approach to picking and applying for scholarships, and make sure you have the best chances for winning the money.
So, through the power of ZeeMee and dedicated students’ social networks, we are making special announcements and offering fast, actionable advice to all your questions.
Not sure whether a scholarship is real or spam? Is it worth your time? What about that application letter and how to find scholarships where you would shine? Want help with your essay?
Ask us, we’re there for you.
But Don’t Just Chat With Us
Not only will you be able to talk to us, but ZeeMee connects you to other students who use ScholarshipOwl, and have applied for scholarships and won.
There’s a lot of practical knowledge to be gained.
Get proactive and talk to your fellow students: which scholarships they applied for, what their criteria were, and why they think they won or didn’t. Sometimes it’s about luck, but in some cases – especially when it comes to more specialized (read: better awards) scholarships – other things come into play, like extracurriculars, motivational letters or essays, to name a few. Speaking of essays – ask for a review. A pair of fresh eyes might be the difference between you not getting a scholarship and enjoying the money.
This is where you can really polish your application – by talking and asking meaningful questions – instead of spending hours on a trial-and-error approach (and probably wasting time in the process).
That’s just a tip of the iceberg – so make sure to reach out. You get to hang out with us and other cool people. Meet your fellow students before you even set foot on campus. Use ZeeMee’s “roommate match”, figure out who the people are in your dorm, and try out a bunch of other features for socializing before you start college – all of which are especially important now, in the times of social distancing.
The Convergence of Valuable Student Info
ZeeMee tied all the important aspects of student life into one app and enabled open, the fast conversation about them.
ScholarshipOwl, as a trusted scholarship app, is naturally a part of that conversation.
Now it’s your turn to join. Download the app and explore everything it has to offer. Also, follow our channel within ZeeMee to get the latest on scholarships and talk to other students about it.
