IGDA Scholars

The IGDA Scholars Program is one of the most coveted awards for promising students in game development and related disciplines. The program draws on a panel of industry experts to select a group of students who are considered the “best and brightest”. These Scholars get the opportunity to attend one of the many conferences that the program operates at, where they receive a complimentary pass, exclusive meeting opportunities, one-on-one mentoring from an industry veteran and tours of studios local to the event.

Over its history since 2001 (predating the Foundation by a number of years), many industry luminaries such as Robin Hunicke, Scott Jon Siegel and Whitney Hills have been recipients of the once-in-a-lifetime experience of being an IGDA Scholar.

The IGDA Foundation is proud to organize the IGDA Scholars Program, and enable students in fields covering the full spectrum of game development to have an incredible, once in a lifetime experience.


We are grateful to the following organisations whose support makes this program possible
