GDC 2009 Scholarships Notification

The IGDA Student Scholarship Program for GDC09 is now underway! If you're a student interested in the field, be sure not to miss out the opportunity to meet the big guys of the gaming industry in San Francisco, California next March! Through this program, if selected, you will receive a main conference pass with access to all sessions, roundtables and keynotes, an industry mentor that will introduce you around and a chance to visit a local studio and an orientation session as well. This is a big opportunity for anyone who is interested in getting his or her career off the ground! ;-)

If you want to know more about what's ahead, check out reports from previous winners, including Liz's report from 2007. It's also worth mentioning that there's a forum post from one of the judges, Mr. David Weinstein, giving an insight in the judging process. The deadline for all applications is Thursday, January 15th, 2009.
