Selected applicants will receive a GDC 2019 Conference + Summits pass (normally $2000+) at no cost. Our goal with this is to remove a barrier to entry for creatives of color at various levels of expertise toward attending GDC, the largest gathering of professional game creators. We will also provide some support to all selected scholars, including sharing information from experienced professionals, meetup opportunities, and more that will be shared closer to the event. Assistance for travel and lodging is a goal, and will be provided in order of need, but is pending funding availability and is not guaranteed. If assistance is needed, that will not be a negative factor in your application.
GDC 2019 will take place March 18th - March 22nd in San Francisco, California. Applications will be accepted until 11:59pm EST on December 19th, and announcements will be made by early January.
