Cards Against Humanity Offers Full-Ride Scholarships to Women Pursuing STEM

Popular card game Cards Against Humanity is setting the deck high for giving back.

The card game announced that its new science-focused 30-card expansion pack released earlier this year will raise money for the Science Ambassador Scholarship Fund — a scholarship program that funds women pursuing undergraduate degrees in STEM Fields with a college scholarship.

As stated on the website, the applications will be evaluated by 50 judges, all of which are women who are, in one aspect or another, involved professionally in STEM fields at prestigious institutions like NASA, Harvard Medical School and the National Science Foundation. 

The scholarship's website states that the winner of the Science Ambassador Scholarship will receive full-college tuition coverage for up to four years.

The game's co-founder Josh Dillon, who is currently pursuing a PhD in astrophysics at MIT, expressed in a statement the need to highlight women in science and tech fields.

"Women are underrepresented in science, tech, engineering, and math, and we felt like the funding from this pack could have the greatest impact by making it possible for more women to get an education in those fields."
