Kenny Sandorffy

CMO and co-founder of Apply.Me

Kenny Sandorffy is a scholarship visionary. After his own experiences applying for scholarships while he was in college, he came up with the idea to create a platform to fix the problems he faced with the scholarship system. This included trouble identifying the scholarships he qualified for and the endless hours he spent filling out applications he found all by himself. After years as a technology entrepreneur, he put together a team to create Apply.Me. The site provides a streamlined way to find likely, multiple scholarships, and automates a large part of the application process.

Kenny graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) with a Bachelor of Science in Employment Relations and HR Management. He earned his Master of Arts degree in the field of Image and Communication from Goldsmiths College.

Jordan Schanda

College Preparation Expert

Jordan Schanda had to learn everything about college and scholarships the hard way. After a lot of work and a little bit of trial and error, she was fortunate to be awarded nearly $50,000 for college. Knowing her brother was not the same type of student, she and her mom carefully outlined and documented the process that had worked so successfully. They’ve helped thousands of families across the country and the world navigate this process so that they can get into their top choice school and win scholarships to pay for their education.
