Deadline
January 30, 2018
  • 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. With technology always at the ready at your fingertips, it can be a challenge to unplug. But taking a break from technology is healthy for both the mind and body. 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.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
