Pornhub Awards University of Michigan Student with a $25K Scholarship


Ann Arbor, Michigan – Need a good excuse to watch porn? Well here’s one… how about supporting a company that helps support woman pursuing careers in male dominated fields? A University of Michigan grad student has been awarded a $25,000 scholarship from Pornhub for her work in the lab on a doctoral thesis in neurobiology.

Pornhub, one of the most popular pornography websites on the internet, announced Wednesday, April 12, that Natalie Nevarez, who’s working to wrap up her doctorate in biopsychology, is the winner of its second annual Pornhub Cares Scholarship.

Open to “outstanding women pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) exclusively,” the scholarship competition was created to assist and celebrate women whose contributions to STEM fields signify distinctive accomplishment as well as a desire to make the world a better place.

Nevarez caught the eye of judges with her story as the daughter of Mexican migrant fruit pickers, the Post reported.

In a video documenting Nevarez winning the award along with her audition video, she describes the research she has carried out with the neurobiology of monogamy, examining how brain chemistry impacts monogamous relationships in prairie voles.

“It has a lot of applications for human health and I’m personally very interested in drug addiction and social relationships so I’m hoping to keep doing that after I graduate,” she mentioned in the video.

Take a look at the video of Nevarez winning the scholarship below:
