Digital Privacy Scholarship 2019-2020
Digital Responsibility is pleased to announce the Digital Privacy Scholarship 2019 and is inviting eligible students to apply.
The Digital Responsibility Company believe it is important to understand that almost everything you post online is neither temporary nor private. And posting too much information can have disastrous consequences. Therefore, they are offering this scholarship to know how aware people are as regards to Digital Privacy.
According to a CareerBuilder survey, 43% of employers who use social media have decided not to hire staff. According to a poll by Kaplan Test Prep, 12% of admissions officers at colleges who reviewed Facebook did not choose to accept a candidate.
This award is designed to help you understand why you should pay attention to what you post on the Internet. You will find more information about digital privacy HERE.
