GGJ Scholarship Program

We are extremely happy to announce the return of the Global Game Jam scholarship program, kicking off with an official partnership with the GDC conference, we are able to offer 25 "Conference + Summits" passes to our jammers, organisers, and volunteers!

We encourage everyone from the GGJ community to apply, especially if you have never had the chance to go to GDC before, or you come from an underrepresented region of the world that normally don’t get their voices heard within a games industry context.  

As well as getting your voice heard, the scholarships give participants an opportunity to further their career development through networking and on-site learning as well as being able to bring this new knowledge and experience back to their community at home.

GDC is the world’s largest forum for the game development community to come together and share ideas, and we are really excited to be able to share this experience with you. As well as the conference and parties, GGJ will be putting on a mixer and roundtable, to help you meet others in the community and also participate in crafting the GGJ experience for 2020. 

In order to apply for the chance of getting a scholarship with us, fill out this application from.

Applications close on November 18th 23:00 PST (we know this is early, sorry! But we want to give people the best shot at being able to get their admin and visas sorted out in time). Winners will be notified by November 25th.

Please note, you are financially responsible for your transportation, meals, accommodations and any other costs related to attending.
