We do not have an exact equivalent to Grammarly, because part of the mission of our College as an institution is to help you internalize that set of skills as students. Microsoft Word is installed widely on campus and has grammar and spelling tools that can help you, as well as proofreading tools in many other languages than English. Google Documents also offers basic spelling assistance. We also routinely refer people to the Speaking, Arguing, and Writing center on campus for peer assistance on all kinds of formatting, grammar, plagiarism avoidance, and paper editing. You can find more info about their services, and even book an appointment, at https://www.mtholyoke.edu/saw/peer/center

The SAW center can also advise you on the appropriate citation styles and formatting standards for papers in different areas of academia, because each academic discipline has their own accepted standards, which are a little different from subject to subject. 

For assistance with using software to format your citations appropriately, the Citing tabs on our research guides can be helpful. Here's an example from the English research guide: http://guides.mtholyoke.edu/c.php?g=102071&p=3617179
