Scholarship open to find the next digital game developer

GritoBlast! For anyone in college who has dreams of creating the next great computer game, there’s a scholarship for that.

Crazygames, a Belgium-based company, is a gaming website that focuses on featuring innovative browser games. Each year, it offers an annual scholarship for any student in computer science or a related computer education program.

Our mission at CrazyGames.com is to let people enjoy innovative in-browser gaming experiences. That is only possible thanks to the countless game developers, digital designers, and software engineers whose creativity and passion allows us to provide thousands of free games. Out of gratefulness to community, and to help foster the next generation of digital media developers, we decided to give a hand to students who are working to build the future of this field and thus established an annual Student Scholarship with which we give away $1,500 every year to one student.

The scholarship, based on a student’s creativity and commitment to digital media and game development, is open to both current university and college students, as well as, entering freshmen. The winning applicant will receive the full amount of $1500 directly transferred to their school for tuition.

To apply, applicants need to submit one piece of work. There are no limits on the form of the work. Examples of work would be a game prototype, an essay related to games, an overview of game development technologies, etc. The work will remain the student’s property.

A scholarship committee of 2 game publishing experts and 2 game developers will decide on the winning entry.
