This year’s IGDA Scholars have reported back from a great GDC! We were excited to send 18 talented students to the annual Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco where they met eminent developers for private Q & A sessions, worked one-on-one with industry mentors, and toured Bay Area games studios. This year, we we also delighted to offer travel stipends courtesy of our recent partnership with Intel. Stacey Mason, a PhD student at UC Santa Cruz and one of this year’s GDC Scholars, writes of her experience:
I can say with total sincerity that being an IGDA Scholar has changed my life. From meeting some of the incredible people behind my favorite games to invaluable advice from my mentor, the scholars program has provided me with so many opportunities that I will never forget.
Congratulations again to this year’s GDC scholars!
