DIVERSI IN PARTNERSHIP WITH KING PRESENTS OUR KING GDC SCHOLARSHIP 2017 FOR ASPIRING WOMEN IN GAMES

A competition for female (cis/trans) students with permanent EU residency looking to pursue a career in the games industry.

In an effort to further encourage and strengthen the presence of women in the games industry, Diversi in partnership with King will be sending 10 students to the 2017 Game Developers Conference (GDC), the world’s largest and longest-running game industry event.

The Scholarship, a competition initiated by Diversi and King’s employee network Women@King, is open to all female-identifying students with permanent EU residency pursuing a degree and considering a future in the games industry. The scholarship aims to provide more women with the opportunity to grow their network, exchange ideas and ease the transition from student life to work life.

So if you’re thinking about a professional future in the games industry, send us your application and hopefully you will be coming with us to GDC 2017!
