To apply for the Science Ambassador Scholarship, 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. Your video should be a mini-lecture, not a personal statement. Pretend you're a lecturer speaking to a class. Teach us something. Should be a 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, but it must be three minutes or fewer in length. The video can be 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). Be 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. Upload your video to YouTube and mark it ‘public.’ To be eligible, you identify as a woman in a way that is significant to you and you will be attending college full-time in the United States during the academic year following the award, seeking an undergraduate degree in STEM. All fields within science, technology, engineering, and math are eligible. A STEM field must be your major field of study (not your minor).
