For Season 2, 'Grown-Ish' Is Partnering With This App To Help Viewers Erase Student Loan Debt

Grown-ish is helping its college-age viewers erase their student loan debt.

The Freeform black-ish spinoff has partnered with scholarship app Scholly to create a program that will pay off up to $125,000 of student debt. The program was created in part to help promote grown-ish‘s second season, which will premiere on Freeform Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.

“Acknowledging that student loans have crippled a generation of young Americans and are keeping them from achieving their dreams, the program aims to help student loan borrowers pay off debts that may be holding them back from living their best lives. Thus far, Scholly has helped students win over $100 million dollars in scholarships and aided many in reducing their debt,” said the network in a statement.

Current students and grads with an outstanding loan balance are encouraged to submit themselves into the program’s first round via Scholly’s website or app between Jan. 2 and Jan. 31. Winners will be announced at the 2019 Freeform Summit.

Grown-ish stars Yara Shahidi as Zoey Johnson, who has left the nest and is out learning about the world at college. Also starring are Trevor Jackson, Chloe Bailey, Halle Bailey, Francia Raisa, Emily Arlook, Jordan Buhat, Luka Sabbat, Diggy Simmons, Chris Parnell and Deon Cole.
