Win a full-tuition scholarship!

Film a three-minute video of yourself explaining a topic in STEM you are passionate about and you could win a full-tuition scholarship.

Deadline: Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2018

Eligibility
  • Female
  • Undergraduate college student
  • Majoring in a STEM field

Vide requirements:
  • Submit a mini–lecture, not a personal statement. Pretend you're a lecturer speaking to a class. Teach something.
  • Demonstrate your passion for the subject. Your video doesn't need to be fancy or high tech. Production value is not a factor.
  • Your video needs to be scientifically accurate. You are encouraged to cite resources used in your research.
  • Be clear and creative. People who aren't science experts should be able to understand your video.
  • Your video must be three minutes or less in length.
  • Choose any topic in STEM, not necessarily your field of study.
  • Upload your video to YouTube and mark it as "public."

The finalists will be notified in early 2018 and will move onto the next round to submit additional materials.
