Cards Against Humanity Announces the Science Ambassador Scholarship

Friday, September 18, 2015

The average player of Cards Against Humanity may not be aware of all the incredible things they have done over the years. The outrageous card game has given money to various charities including the Wikimedia Foundation, an incredible school shopping spree from, and the Sunlight Foundation. Their latest card pack, The Science Pack, has upped the ante quite a bit. They are funding a full tuition undergraduate scholarship for women pursuing a degree in science, engineering, math or technology.

The Science Ambassador Scholarship fund has raised over half a million dollars as of this post. Applicants are asked to submit a video of themselves talking about a science they are passionate about. The full list of eligible programs covers an impressive number of degree paths from Aeronautics to Video Graphics. 

Jenn Bane, CAH's Community director said, “We created this scholarship because we want to put a spotlight on women who are passionate about science. It’s so important that young girls know they have a future in any field they want to explore, especially math and science, which are historically male-dominated fields. We felt like we could make a huge impact in this area by funding a woman’s education, and helping her become an ambassador for her field.”

Video submissions are due by December 15th, and the winner will be announced in spring of 2016. Applications will be reviewed by a board of fifty women with higher degrees and work in science, including representatives from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and many others.

It's an incredible thing for any group to do something like this. Please consider supporting this effort by picking up the Science Pack  from the official CAH store
