Science Saves Senior Scholarship

The Center for Inquiry is pleased to announce the #ScienceSaves High School Video Scholarship for college-bound high school seniors. The awards range from $250-$10,000.

Describe an experience in your life that demonstrates that science does indeed save. The experience can be something that happened to you or someone you know.

How to Enter

Create a 20-30 second video answering the question “What has science done for me?” or “What has science done for somebody I know?” You will be judged on your ability to highlight how science saves in a succinct, creative way with original photos, video clips, and text. Be sure to add #sciencesaves to your video.
