THE KING GDC SCHOLARSHIP

NETWORK. REPRESENT. INSPIRE.

ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME

The principal aim of the competition is to increase representation of women at industry events 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.

COMING WITH US TO GDC 2017

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 interviews, 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.

Diversi and King GDC16 Scholarship

This year, we brought 10 incredible students to San Francisco as part of the Diversi and King GDC16 Scholarship for Aspiring Women in Games. Here’s a snapshot of their week! A great saga needs all sorts of heroes

PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAMME

The scholarship includes an All Access GDC Pass, meaning that our participants will get access to over 400 lectures, workshops and panels, a GDCVault 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!

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, exchange ideas with like-minded people, and perhaps even get a foot in the door for a job which they’ve been aiming for.
