The King Women in Gaming Scholarship
"To increase representation of women and thereby give them a stronger voice, providing opportunities for networking and encouraging the exchange of ideas, making them better equipped to handle the transition from student life into work life."
"The idea of giving the Scholarship alone felt as if it needed to be complemented and that is why this year we are launching it in conjunction with King Internships Program, to grant not only exposure to the industry’s biggest event but also the opportunity to work with great professionals and learn from the best during 2 to 6 months (role and location dependent). This means that the 5 winners will get both an internship with King and a Scholarship to attend GDC 2018."
