We are proud to announce that our 2016 GDC Scholarship Applications are now open!

#INeedDiverseGames is excited to announce that in partnership with the Game Developers Conference we will be awarding 23 All Access passes to the 2016 Game Developers Conference, held March 14-18, 2016 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. The GDC attracts over 26,000 attendees, and is the primary forum where game developers of all disciplines gather to exchange ideas and shape the future of the industry.

This conference features over 400 lectures, panels, tutorials and round-table discussions. The all-access pass provides entry to all 5 days of the event, including the IGF Festival, the Game Developer Choice Awards, all GDC sponsored mixers and parties, the Game Career Seminar and more.

#INeedDiverseGames is dedicated to increasing diversity both in game and in studio, and we will be awarding these scholarships to members of marginalized groups (person of color, LGBTQIA, woman, or reside at an intersection of those identities) who would not have the opportunity to attend the GDC without financial assistance. Whether you make diverse games or otherwise intentionally furthers the agenda for diversification of gaming (though podcasts, streaming, or other media critique and content) we want to hear from you!

Complete information, including application link and review board information are at our GDC Scholarship page. 

Good luck!
