Description:
Based on a competitive application process, each year the HERO program selects a diverse group of undergraduate students across the country to be HERO Fellows. HERO values students who demonstrate energetic and inquisitive minds, and who are fearless when charting new intellectual territory. Previous course work in human or environmental geography?such as urban and population studies, GIS, landscape ecology, land-use planning, statistics, and remote sensing?is helpful but not required. There is no minimum GPA or required class standing, but evidence of outstanding scholarly and professional potential is essential. Because HERO is supported with NSF funds, you must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or its possessions to participate.
