    The Science Ambassador Scholarship is a full tuition scholarship for a woman seeking an undergraduate degree in science, engineering, or math, funded by Cards Against Humanity. The ideal candidate will be an ambassador for their field–someone passionate about discovery who shares their excitement with others.


    To apply, submit a video of yourself explaining a topic in science you are passionate about. The videos will be reviewed by a board of fifty women who hold higher degrees and work professionally in science and engineering. Ten video finalists will move onto the next round and submit additional materials.


    Scholarship funds will be provided from Cards Againsst Humanity's Science Pack–a 30-card expansion pack co-authored with Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal's Zach Weinersmith and Bad Astronomy's Phil Plait.


    The winner of the Science Ambassador Scholarship will receive full tuition coverage for up to four years.


    You must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and a full-time college student in the 2016-2017 academic year seeking a degree in a STEM field. This scholarship is for women (trans-inclusive).

    Record and upload a public video to YouTube explaining a scientific topic you’re passionate about. The video should be no longer than three minutes– we won’t watch anything longer. Make sure the video is set to public, but feel free to disable comments. Don’t worry about using a fancy camera or equipment; production value isn’t a factor. We’re looking for someone passionate and excited to talk about science.
