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.
Scholarship funds will be provided from Cards Against 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.

How to Apply
The ideal candidate will be an ambassador for their field. We’re looking for someone passionate about discovery who shares their excitement with others.
To apply, submit a three–minute video of yourself explaining a topic in science you are passionate about.Deliver a mini lecture, not a personal statement, as if you are teaching or lecturing an audience. Don’t spend lots of time introducing yourself—just jump right into your topic. Your video should be three minutes, no 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.
Please note that you must be in college in fall of 2017 to be eligible. The videos will be reviewed by a board of sixty 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.
Applications close on December 11th, 2016 at midnight central time.
