Arlington, TX (PRWEB) February 11, 2009
Every year hazing allegations continue to appear rampantly in the news headlines across the country, and college students are still dying from hazing incidents. Just recently a Cal Poly student lost his young life due to alcohol poisoning as a direct result from traditional fraternity initiation rituals. National Hazing Prevention Week, which is the last week in September on many college campuses, educates and tries to prevent this type of foolish loss of life, which is also the goal of the Hazing Awareness Scholarship.
Staying true to its original intention, the scholarship was created to bring more awareness to the issue of hazardous hazing that exists on college campuses primarily focusing on the Greek Organizations. Any college student may apply for the cash award scholarship as long as the student's school has a Greek social setting. The student does not have to belong to a fraternity or sorority. The 2009 renewal is privately funded and sponsored by Secret Sisterhood Part 2, an independent feature film at http://www.sspart2.com, where any student can preview the entire movie online for free.
The originator, author and independent filmmaker Big Walt Anderson, of the scholarship states, "More need to be done to prevent hazardous hazing. Even as I change my company's direction and focus I will continue to try and do what I can because no one should suffer injuries or have their life threatened due to the traditional harmful practices of hazing. I believe the Hazing Awareness Scholarship will enlighten many students on their school's hazing policy and if this makes a difference in just one student's life then this scholarship is worth it."
