Cards Against Humanity, the popular “party game for horrible people,” is out to offend – except on those occasions when it’s actually helping humanity by awarding scholarships to young women studying science, technology, engineering or math (STEM). Cards Against Humanity funds the Science Ambassador Scholarship, co-sponsored by the Scientista Foundation, which covers the entire tuition for students like University of Pennsylvania materials science and engineering major Sona Dadhania, the scholarship’s inaugural recipient, according to an article from CBS Chicago.

High school students can make their bid for the next Science Ambassador Scholarship by submitting a three-minute video that demonstrates their passion for science.
