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.
