    For my sins I’ll be helping vet all student applications this year so get them in now!

    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 1th at London’s Le Meridien Hotel.

    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 by the IGDA Board of Directors, the Education Committee, and the Studio Affiliate heads. Deadline for entry is Wednesday, July 20; the membership application is currently available online.

    “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.”

    [GDCE is presented by the CMP Game Group, organizers of the Game Developers Conference and Serious Games Summit, and publishers of Game Developer Magazine and Gamasutra.com.]

    Sounds like a great opportunity. Presumably, if you enter this competition then you’ll be unable to for the GDC held in America?

    Even still, it may be worth entering. I’d probably never have the cash to get over to the states even if I did win. GDC Europe is a much cheaper option.

    GDC Europe – http://www.gdceurope.com/
    IGDA scholarships – http://www.igda.org/scholarships/

    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.
