STEM funding for undergraduates is cropping up from many unusual places, including Cards Against Humanity.  People from the show `The Big Bang Theory’ have done it for UCLA, raising over $4 million to endow a scholarship for students in STEM majors.

The Cards Against Humanity game just did something remarkable: they will soon offer full-ride college scholarships for women in STEM fields.  The Science Ambassador Scholarship will be open for the Fall 2016 school year.  It will primarily be funded by the game’s new “Science Pack” expansion to the original game, according to their press release.
