The Big Bang Theory Scholarship!
Even if you’re not of a fan of the show, The Big Bang Theory, there has been some very heartwarming news that has been released that you might be interested in reading about!
The show has created their very own scholarship with four million dollars saved up so far. They are planning to award twenty students next year who are entering the field of science and engineering and are coming from low-income earning families at the University of California, Los Angeles, and five each year afterwards. The show is known for having many guest stars in the science field (Stephen Hawking, Bill Nye, Buzz Aldrin, among many others) and its main cast play the roles of scientists.
I think it is very generous of the show to provide this opportunity for students who are passionate about entering the field but might not have the funds to pursue higher education. For a show that is a great success, it is really nice to hear that they are giving back something to their fans!
Do you watch the show? What do you think about this generosity?
