  • Scholarship Description
  • Young people spend an average of 7.5 hours a day consuming media - and this doesn't include computer use for schoolwork - according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The purpose of this scholarship is to help you understand the negative effects of too much screen time.

    You must be a high school freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior or a current or entering college or graduate school student of any level. Home-schooled students are also eligible. There is no age limit. You must also be a U.S. citizen or legal resident.

    To apply, complete the application form, including a 140-character message about technology addiction. The top 10 applications will be selected as finalists. The finalists will be asked to write a full length 500- to 1,000-word essay about technology addiction.
