The folks behind the Cards Against Humanity party game have established the Science Ambassador Scholarship, which offers a full tuition scholarship of up to four years for a woman seeking an undergraduate degree in science, engineering, or math. They are looking for individuals who are passionate about discovery and able to share that excitement with others.

ScienceAmbassadorScholarshipApplications include a video of three minutes or less where you explain a scientific topic you are passionate about. Just record and upload a public video to YouTube and fill our a very brief application by December 1, 2015. Videos will be reviewed by a board of 50 judges (including GSA members Joyce Kao and Renee Robbins and former GSA member Mónica Feliú-Mójer) who all work in science and engineering. Ten finalists will be asked to submit additional materials early next year.

Eligibility is limited to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who will be full-time college students in the 2016–2017 academic year seeking a STEM undergraduate degree.

The scholarship is supported by proceeds from the game’s Science Pack.
