Pursing a degree related to law? We'll help get you there

Here at Course Hero we want to provide financial assistance to students pursuing a degree related to law. We understand there are many costs associated with higher education. We want to help alleviate some of that financial burden, so you can graduate confident and prepared.

To apply for this scholarship, first create a Course Hero account, then write a 500-word essay. The topic: Please tell use why you are inspired to pursue a degree related to law, and how you plan on using your degree to fight for justice.

If you've won, we'll email you by January 18th, 2021, 11:59 PM PST to let you know. The scholarship money will then be sent directly to your school and applied to your tuition.
