In 2007 the ESA Foundation established a scholarship program to assist women and minority students who are pursuing degrees leading to careers in Computer & Video Game Arts. In 2009 we extended this opportunity to graduating high school seniors and doubled the amount of awards granted from 15 to 30.
The scholarships are offered for full-time undergraduate study at accredited four-year colleges and universities in the USA. Up to 30 scholarships of $3,000 each will be awarded annually, 15 to graduating high school seniors and 15 to current college students.
Applicants must be:
- Women or minority students,
- Pursuing degrees leading to careers in computer and video game arts (high school seniors must already be accepted into a program),
- Enrolling or enrolled in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited four-year college or university in the United States,
- Maintaining a grade point average of 2.75 or above on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent), and
- US citizens.
