Posted October 25, 2018 12:29:38 Canada’s government announced Friday that the country has opened the doors for game designers to receive scholarships for their work in game design.
The $10,000 grant, which is aimed at game design scholarships that aim to develop more effective games, was created in response to the growing interest in game development, with the province of Ontario launching the first ever game design competition last year.
The game design contest was aimed at helping game creators find scholarships and gain entry to universities.
Canada has only had one game design program in the past 10 years, and this year is the first time it will offer an entire program.
The university in question, University of Toronto, has created a “game design scholarship” program for students that focuses on game development.
“We’ve been really pleased to see so many young people applying and taking advantage of this opportunity,” said Kathleen Clements, director of student services and co-founder of the Canadian Game Design Scholarships Association.
“This program is a huge step in making sure that game design and game development are included in our curriculum.”
This year’s program is being run by the university’s School of Game Design, where there are two full-time positions and a part-time position.
It is the second year in a row that the university has opened up its program to game designers.
This year, the program will allow students to apply to the university for a full-ride scholarship worth up to $10.00 per course and to the program for up to a maximum of $15.00.
The money is divided among the program and students, with $5.00 going to the game design programs scholarship and $5 to the full-study program.
Clements says that the money will help students get into the game development program at university.
“The first year was really a huge disappointment, but now it’s starting to look like it could be a good year,” she said.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to make games and work with the best game designers in the world.
There’s so much to learn in this field, and so much that can be learned from making games, and the university is a great place to learn more.”
The money will go towards a wide range of programs, including game design courses and coursework in game mechanics.
“They are offering this opportunity to people who want to learn how to make great games, because there’s so many wonderful people who are making great games,” said Clements.
“And I’m sure that a lot of people are going to want to get into game design, and it’s going to be a really exciting time for everybody involved in the industry.”
The first ever games design program has also welcomed some big names.
The University of British Columbia, which will offer two full scholarships, has just announced a game design student program for undergraduates.
The school has also announced plans to open up a full game design university for students who want a broader curriculum.
“I’m very proud to have the first game designers program at a university, and I’m very pleased to be able to help this new generation of game designers and game developers find opportunities that can bring them into this world,” said the university president, Robyn Benson.
“These students will have the opportunity to experience the game making process, to make their own games, learn from the best, and to work with top game designers from across Canada.”
