Cyberbullying Awareness Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

Michael McCready is a family man by default. He and his wife reside in Chicago along with their six children. Being a family man, Michael stays very involved in his children’s lives and as they have grown he has seen the massive impact cyberbullying can have on individuals, their friends, and especially amongst their peers.

Cyberbullying is much more comprehensive than what we consider “traditional” bullying. With the copious amount of technology at our fingertips, children are gaining access to devices and social forums at a much younger age. This enables cyberbullying to affect children and teenagers 24/7 on a variety of media platforms, not just in your immediate community but in online communities where participants are from all over the world.

Everyone can help prevent cyberbullying by raising awareness about how to prevent it. The personal injury attorneys at McCready Law have established a scholarship in the amount of $1,000 for a student who is passionate about this issue. Cyberbullying is prevalent and at times can seem unstoppable, so how can we effectively raise awareness to promote prevention?

Scholarship Eligibility

The Cyberbullying Awareness Scholarship is open to high school seniors planning to attend college, or anyone currently enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or law program at a college or university in the United States. Applicants should be in good academic standing and have a cumulative GPA of a 3.0 or higher.

  • Your most recent transcript
  • A current resumé
  • A 750 word response to the prompt: Discuss the role of parents, school administration, and the role YOU could play in cyberbullying awareness and prevention. How can these parties react to cyberbullying and what steps can they take to effectively prevent it?
