Admit it: You’ve spent a few late nights playing Cards Against Humanity, the “party game for horrible people.” The game is the perfect combination of raunchy, smart, and irreverent, and when you get the right people together, it’s both magical and something you probably don’t want to talk about the next day. Now, the card game juggernaut has done it again, announcing the new Science Expansion Pack—and with it, the promise of a new scholarship for women STEM students.

100% of the proceeds for the new expansion pack, now on sale at the Cards Against Humanity store, will go toward funding the new scholarship opportunity. Co-created with the popular web comic, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, the Science Ambassador Scholarship will fully fund one woman in STEM for her undergraduate education. According to the rules, applicants must be in high school or college and “must identify as women in a way that’s significant to them.” The applicants will be reviewed by a board of over forty women who hold higher degrees and work professionally in science, including representatives from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Harvard Medical School, the Smithsonian Institution, the Adler Planetarium, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, as well as TED, NSF, Huxley, and Hubble fellows.

As of this writing, the expansion pack has raised $339,732. Curious about what the cards hold? The Nerdist published a sneak-peak of the pack late last year. Take a look—Uranus will thank you.
