Great news! Via Boing Boing.
Cards Against Humanity put $1M into a permanent trust that pays for an annual full-ride scholarship for women in science, technology, engineering, or math who are high-school seniors or current undergrads.
You’ve got until Dec 17 to apply, and the application is pretty lightweight: “To apply, candidates should submit a three-minute video explaining a scientific topic they’re passionate about to ScienceAmbassadorScholarship.org.”
Here’s some info regarding the scholarship directly from the source:
Film a three–minute video of yourself explaining a topic in STEM you are passionate about. You must be a high school senior or an undergraduate college student to apply. To view examples of previous application videos, click here. Your video should be:
- A mini–lecture, not a personal statement. Pretend you’re a lecturer speaking to a class. Teach us something.
- Clear, creative, accurate, and a demonstration of your passion for the subject. Your video doesn’t need to be fancy or high–tech. Production value is not a factor.
- Three minutes or less in length.
- About any topic in STEM, not necessarily your field of study.
- Uploaded to YouTube and marked ‘public.’ It should be accessible to the general public and could, but doesn’t have to be, targeted at young students.
