One of our best known programs is the IGDA Scholarships – an opportunity for exceptional students around the world to participate in games industry events and receive a once in a lifetime VIP experience with industry mentorship, studio tours, meetings with senior industry figures and more.
The IGDA Foundation is delighted to have supported this unique program in Cologne, Germany at the collocated Game Developers Conference Europe and Gamescom events. Eight Scholars were chosen to attend and received a full VIP experience all week, from meetings with veterans such as Don Daglow and Brenda Romero to getting to enjoy the Sony Press Briefing in person and more, we’re delighted to have had the opportunity to give these exceptional students a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The Scholarships team is already starting to work on making 2015 one of the greatest yet for the program, and we’d love to talk to you about how you can be a part of it! From the mentors to the meetings to the exclusive opportunities they receive, every part of the experience we deliver to these aspiring game developers is driven by the generosity of our industry.
