Opportunity: NYU Game Center Announces New Scholarship for Women Game Designers

“Since the 1980’s, digital and board games have largely focused on attracting young men, creating over the years a startling gender disparity within the games industry,” said Briceño. “The Game Center is a welcoming and supportive environment for all students, and I was especially impressed both by how internationally and demographically diverse our student body was, and yet still by how comparatively few female students we had in my class. Our goal with the Scholarship is to encourage women to pursue game design as a career and to see the industry as expanding and inviting. It is vital that we send the message that women are welcome and needed as diverse voices and creators within the gaming industry.”
