Gamer Girl Scholarships

Are you a girl who loves video games? Have you also perhaps thought of a career in video game design? If so, I have some excellent news for you! Sony Online Entertainment is now accepting applications for their third-annual G.I.R.L. Scholarship! This award comes with up to $10,000.00 towards a student’s tuition and other educational expenses. Even better – the winner will have the option of participating in a 10 week internship with Sony Online Entertainment!

Information and rules regarding this opportunity can be found on the G.I.R.L. website. The application deadline this year is February 15th, so you better get busy!

Women often bring a whole new perspective to the gaming industry, which is why companies such as Sony are sitting up and taking notice. As more of us girls give ourselves over to the game, manufacturers are scrambling to figure out what it is we want to see and do when we play.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a young woman already enrolled in a program for video game design. If anyone reading this applies, I hope you’ll let us know the outcome! We’d love to be able to feature the winner here on this site!

Don’t forget that on our forum we have an entire section devoted to video games. You can discuss your favorite games, share your tips and tricks, and even talk about design!
