Scholarships with a Non-Specific Due Date

A full–tuition scholarship for a woman in science, technology, engineering, or math.
Funded by Cards Against Humanity. Applications for the 2022 academic year open this fall.

  • Applications for the 2022 academic year open this fall. To apply, film a three–minute educational video of yourself explaining a STEM topic you're passionate about. You must be a high school senior or an undergraduate college student to apply. To view examples of videos we've liked in the past, check out our previous winners. 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. We value novel, memorable approaches to topics. Your video doesn't need to be fancy or high–tech. Production value is not a factor.
    • Three minutes or less in length. No exceptions!
    • About any STEM topic, not necessarily your field of study. Pick a topic that excites and fascinates you. We don't need to hear about the latest thing in science news (unless that's your jam).
    • Scientifically accurate. We encourage you to cite the sources used to research your topic. Ideally, this would be in a slide or frame at the end of your video.
    • Uploaded to YouTube and marked ‘public.’ No exceptions!

    Please note: Part of being a science communicator is leading by example. If applicable, please film your video in a way that complies with your local safety regulations related to COVID-19.

    An advisory board of women who hold higher degrees and work in a broad range of STEM fields will review applications and select finalists. Finalists will be notified in early 2022 and will move onto the next round to submit additional materials. A winner will be announced in April 2022.

Glen Ledger Scholarship

Full Website, History and Story

In 5 paragraphs, let us know why you think you deserve a scholarship in our dad's name. We have attached some links so that you may learn more about him. You can check out the comments on the website we created during the week he collapsed. If you read them, you'll see why it was necessary to make a website at all. He touched so many lives that we simply couldn't find a better way to keep everyone updated on how he was doing. He was a community dad. He saw the best in all people and had many friends. If you ever met him and talked to him for more then a few minutes, you were his friend.

Don't feel the need to focus on your own hardships. We'd much rather hear about where you're going, rather than where you've been. You also don't need to compare yourself to our dad. Again, we're interested in the story of where you are going. Finally, don't worry about sending us a letter of recommendation. We want you to write your own letter of recommendation. Thanks so much, and Happy Applying.

This year we will be awarding 1 person $1000.00.

Requirements: This scholarship is for seniors who plan to graduate from a High School in Wyoming. Please send a copy of your high school transcript along with your essay to:
