University students will have the opportunity to visit the Game Developers Conference Europe, courtesy of the International Game Developers Association.
Those selected by the IGDA would be able to attend all sessions, roundtables, panels, and keynotes at the GDC Europe. The conference runs from Tuesday, August 30th through Thursday, September 1st at London’s Le Meridien Hotel.
“The annual Student Scholarship program provides students with a peek into the game creation process,” says Jason Della Rocca, executive director of IGDA. “It’s one exciting way the IGDA supports aspiring game creators.”
Interested students must meet the sponsorship’s qualifications, which include full-time enrollment at a university and membership of the IGDA. 10 applicants will be selected. The “scholarship” is actually a Classic Pass to the conference, and provides access to all sessions, roundtables and keynotes. Selected students will be responsible for all expenses (travel, lodging, etc.), although breakfast and lunch will be provided at the conference. The membership application is currently available online.
Closing date for applications is July 20th
