THE KING WOMEN IN GAMING SCHOLARSHIP
NETWORK. REPRESENT. INSPIRE.
ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME
The principal aim of the competition is to increase representation of women and thereby give them a stronger voice, providing opportunities for networking and encouraging the exchange of ideas, making them better equipped to handle the transition from student life into work life.
ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP
The idea of giving the Scholarship alone felt as if it needed to be complemented and that is why this year we are launching it in conjunction with King Internships Program, to grant not only exposure to the industry’s biggest event but also the opportunity to work with great professionals and learn from the best during 2 to 6 months (role and location dependent). This means that the 5 winners will get both an internship with King and a Scholarship to attend GDC 2018.
COMING WITH US TO GDC 2018
GDC is an excellent opportunity for students to flourish and take a further step toward their career goals. You will have unique opportunities to attend conferences, seminars and the chance to meet a variety of professionals working in the games industry. We encourage students to come prepared with ideas, thoughts, and questions. We will do our best to lend support and help get your questions answered.

PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAMME
The scholarship includes an All Access GDC Pass, meaning that our participants will get access to over 500 lectures, workshops and panels, a GDC Vault subscription (granting access to recorded talks from GDC2003 onwards), access to all GDC mixers, and both the Independent Games Festival and Game Developers Choice Awards. (More information about the pass can be found at GDC’s official website.)
Moreover, the scholarship includes events lined up exclusively for the students themselves! This includes networking opportunities and live Q&A sessions – so come prepared with the questions you want answered!
The internship will give you the chance to make an impact. Open to Undergraduates and Master students, it will give you the chance to gain a deep understanding of our industry and learning from some of the best people in it.
NETWORKING WITH US
The scholarship includes plenty of events for the students to meet professional developers within the game industry. There are plenty of different ways to create and develop games, and these networking opportunities are a chance not only for students to put questions directly to the people they meet, it is also an opportunity for them to express who they are and exchange ideas with like-minded people.
