Did you know in a study from Florida Atlantic University, 34 percent of students surveyed admitted to being a victim of cyberbullying once in their lifetime? Many of us have encountered instances of cyberbullying or know someone who has been affected. As an online forum, Talk of The Villages, is dedicated to protecting its users from any form of harassment, and we are thrilled to announce our scholarship, Students Affected by Cyberbullying. This $1,000 scholarship is intended for students who have experienced cyberbullying or continue to do so.
Cyberbullying may be committed by computer, through social media platforms, or cell phone, among other outlets. It can be persistent, hurtful, and damaging. Talk of The Villages wants to lend a helping hand in fighting cyberbullying, and help students affected achieve their full academic potential.
Write a 500-1,000 word essay about an experience you or someone you know had with cyberbullying and what you did, and what advice you would give someone also dealing with cyberbullying.
Please apply for the scholarship and we look forward to reading the essays and awarding this scholarship.
