The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) sent out a reminder to students who would like to join "IGDA Scholars" at GDC in San Francisco later this year through its annual scholarships program. The registration for the 2013 IGDA Scholarships Program is January 11, so if you are interested in signing up you should head on over to igda.org/scholars now. The IGDA Scholarships are awarded to the "best and brightest students" and provide access to the annual conference, individual mentorship from members of industry, opportunities to meet and talk to senior figures in the games industry, and provide an opportunity to visit some of the local studios in the area.
The 2013 IGDA Scholarships Program is open to all students and recent graduates in fields relating to game development.
You can learn more about the scholarship program, what the IGDA does and its other activities related to the game development community by visiting www.igda.org.
