At ByteBiteBit.com, we all come to work every day because we want to assist everyone in solving the problem they might have while using technological devices. We understand how important an education is, so we are offering eligible students the opportunity to win a $2,000 scholarship, as a way to help cut down on the steep cost of high-quality education.
Our scholarship is open to all college students who are committed to making an impact in the world, but there are some requirements. You must fulfill the following requirements to apply:
- Students must be actively enrolled in an American university
- Students must be registered as a U.S. citizen
If you meet these requirements, then you are eligible to submit your essay, which has a chance to win you a $2,000 scholarship award. Applicants who do not meet these requirements will not be considered.
If you meet all of the requirements above, you may submit a 500 - 700 words essay on the topic: “Advantages and Disadvantages of Technology in Education” to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration.
You may also cite clinical studies if you wish, and are encouraged to note any outstanding achievements you have accomplished in your life. Feel free to add your own life experience to your essay, to personalize it.
Please be sure to include the following information:
- Full Name
- Full Address
- University You Are Attending
- Your Major
- Proof of Student Status (*)
Submissions must be sent from a university email, e.g., your_name@your_university.edu, to be considered for the scholarship award. Any submissions that are not sent from a university email will be discarded and will not be considered for this scholarship.
(*) To provide proof of student status, any of the following qualifies:
- Photo of student ID
- Photo of class registration
- Photo of class schedule
- Publicly accessible webpage or web directory that proves student status
You can use photos or screenshots that are taken from your computer, e.g., Windows PCs, macOS PCs, as legit documents to prove student status. Both types of documents are accepted.
The topic of your essay should be on: "Advantages and Disadvantages of Technology in Education" and you may feel free to take your own angle on it. Submissions must be 100% unique, and they will be checked for duplicate content.
For example, you can point out how do technologies help us to learn more efficiently, how they can help teachers and students to improve the traditional teaching and learning, or the importance of technologies to the growth of e-learning.

Students are encouraged to use clinical studies to support their arguments, and to cite authoritative, medical resources, as well. Be sure to submit your essay in MLA format to qualify for this scholarship.
