Cards Against Humanity Is Offering A Science Scholarship for Women

Posted By on Mon, Oct 3, 2016 at 10:00 AM

That's right, one of the world's most popular adult card games, Cards Against Humanity, is offering a Science Ambassador Scholarship to women who are seeking an undergraduate degree in science, engineering, or math. But that's not all: the winner of the scholarship will receive full tuition coverage for up to four years and will also be highlighted for their hard work in their chosen field.

So what's the catch?
 
The SAS requires all candidates to submit a three-minute video of themselves explaining a topic in science that they are passionate about learning and sharing their discoveries with others. The video will be reviewed by a board of sixty women who work in the field of science and engineering and who hold higher educational degrees. The ideal candidate will be an ambassador of their chosen field and must be in college in the fall of 2017. Sounds doable, right?

Although, the video requirements are a little tricky, so pay close attention to what they expect from each participant. Here are some pointers from their website:
  • Deliver a mini lecture, not a personal statement, as if you are teaching or lecturing.
  • Don’t spend lots of time introducing yourself, just jump right into your topic.
  • The video should be three minutes, no shorter or longer.
  • You can discuss any topic in science you like, not necessarily your field of study.
  • Upload the video to YouTube, and make sure the video is set to public.

    Do you want to help support this scholarship?

    Any one can support this scholarship by purchasing a Cards Against Humanity science pack expansion co–authored with Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal’s Zach Weinersmith and Bad Astronomy’s Phil Plait, which goes directly to help fund the scholarship (and let's be real, who doesn't love expansion packs?) Another way to help is by spreading the word to college students, so more women with STEM degrees can hear about this amazing opportunity-because they definitely deserve it.
