No one in your family got to go to college—until you. We created our $5,000 Rise Up First Generation Scholarship to recognize students like you who will inspire generations to come.
To apply for this scholarship, first create a Course Hero account, then write a 500-word essay. The topic: examine a difficult decision made by a character from a movie or a book, and explain why you agree or disagree with it.
If your essay and application give you the winning edge, we’ll email you by August 3, 2020, 11:59 PM PST to let you know. The scholarship money will then be sent directly to your school and applied to your tuition.
NO PURCHASE OR PAYMENT NECESSARY TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SCHOLARSHIP OR RECEIVE THE AWARD. MAKING A PURCHASE DOES NOT INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF AWARD. The Course Hero, Inc., Veteran Hero Scholarship Contest (the "Scholarship") is sponsored by Course Hero, Inc. ("Course Hero").
