We are proud to announce $5,000 in scholarships, sponsored by the Bigglesworth Family Foundation, to Playcrafting’s game design courses in New York City.
Playcrafting empowers the game development community through local events and education in New York City, Boston, and San Francisco. Their game development and design topics curriculum is taught by top instructors with real-world experience.
With these scholarships, we hope to enable more aspiring creators to acquire the skills they need to design games for social change and share their stories. To help make quality game-making education available to under-represented groups in the games industry, we are thrilled to partner with Playcrafting to offer the following scholarships:
- Learn Unity in 8 Weeks: A $1,000 scholarship, bringing the total course cost to $1,500 for the next course starting in April
- Game Writing Primer: A full $600 scholarship for the next course starting April 18
- 8-Class Pass: A full $200 scholarship for entry to 8 one-night classes
The application deadline is April 10 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
Each request will be reviewed by a panel of Playcrafting instructors and advisers. They will consider the following when reviewing responses: Would this person be able to attend a Playcrafting course without the support of a scholarship? How will attending this course benefit this person’s game design skills? How will the applicant use these new skills in the long-term?
