Providing exceptional, yet underrepresented, students with the tools and resources needed to succeed in STEAM careers is essential to diversifying the video game and related industries. While the ESA Foundation wishes it could award a scholarship to every deserving student, we simply do not have the monetary capacity. By creating the Student Network we hope to offer qualified students the same non-monetary benefits our scholars receive—including professional development, interacting with mentors and accessing internships in the video game industry.
The ESA Foundation encourages and supports those who aspire to careers in the video game industry, whether it’s playing or helping to create games. We also know that a college education is expensive—and that the industry is continually seeking ways to increase its diversity. Our three scholarships offer opportunities for everyone. Take a look!
