Course Hero is an online learning platform that offers its users over 30 million course-specific study resources, contributed by a community of students and educators. To help students further their education, Course Hero has introduced the Hero Student Scholarship, providing renewable awards of $5,000.

You must be a legal U.S. resident, planning to enroll full-time for the entire upcoming academic year at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school in the U.S. or the District of Columbia. Nontraditional students are encouraged to apply.
