For a company that is all about promoting a “party game for horrible people”, Cards Against Humanity is certainly into helping woman!
On Monday, the company announced a new science expansion pack where the proceeds from buying the 30-card pack for $10 pack will go towards funding a scholarship for woman interested in science.
“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, and by giving them a platform to share their work and their passion for science," Cards Against Humanity co-creator Josh Dillon said.
Cards Against Humanity is similar to Apples to Apples but with R-rated content that is filled with dark humor and targeted towards millennials. The Science Ambassador Scholarship will cover tuition for one high school or college student for four years but the applicant “must identify as women in a way that’s significant to them.”
“Everyone at Cards Against Humanity was fortunate enough to receive a great college education that helped us find a job that we’re passionate about, and our goal with this scholarship is to make that opportunity available to others,” Cards Against Humanity community manager Jenn Bane said in a press release.
Cards Against Humanity announced that they will begin accepting applications for the fall 2016 school year with a panel of 40 woman who work in the “STEM” field reviweing the applications and making decisions accordingly.
“Cards Against Humanity has a wide reach online, and we’re anticipating a huge volume of applications,” Bane said. “Our hope is that this scholarship makes a tremendous impact in someone’s life, and creates more visibility for women working in science.”
