The ESA Foundation, the charitable arm of the video game industry trade group the Entertainment Software Association, has announced that applications are now being accepted for its 2013-2014 scholarship program. This particular scholarship is for minorities and women that want to get a higher education in the interactive entertainment industry.
To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must take on degrees that are accredited four-year colleges and universities in the United States and must be in the fields of graphic design, computer science, animation, programming, digital entertainment or software engineering. Submissions for the scholarship close on May 15. Those selected will be revealed in the fall.
The ESA Foundation is offering 30 scholarships for this cycle, valued at $3,000 each. The ESA Foundation says that nearly half of these scholarships will go to students that are already enrolled in an accredited degree program, while the rest go to high school seniors.
