  • plans to attend college in the United States.
  • can talk about any scientific topic they find exciting. Remember to deliver a mini lecture, not a personal statement.

Number of Awardees: 1

Value of Scholarship: The winner of the Science Ambassador Scholarship will receive full tuition coverage for up to four years.

 How to Apply: The ideal candidate will be an ambassador for their field. We’re looking for someone passionate about discovery who shares their excitement with others.

To apply, submit a three–minute video of yourself explaining a topic in science you are passionate about.

  • Deliver 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. Your video doesn’t need to be fancy or high–tech. Production value is not a factor.
  • Three minutes or less in length.
  • Uploaded to YouTube and marked ‘public.’ It should be accessible to the general public and could, but doesn’t have to be, targeted at young students.
  • Don’t spend lots of time introducing yourself—just jump right into your topic.
  • You can discuss any topic in science you like, not necessarily your field of study.
