"FlatWorld’s mission is laudable. Adopting affordable textbooks at a fraction of the cost of market leaders, written by world-renowned scholars, seems like a no-brainer. Additionally, winning the FlatWorld scholarship that provides free textbooks to students, especially those attending my institution, makes the transition to a new textbook so much more worthwhile. The simplicity and design of the FlatWorld website and FlatWorld Homework interface evokes enthusiasm to be so much more engaged with the course."

– Dr. Prasad Bidarkota, Economics Professor and 2019 FlatWorld Scholarship Winner
