Welcome to the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences Foundation.
Our 501(c)3 nonprofit organization strives to imbue the interactive entertainment industry with the best and the brightest professionals to maintain a legacy of innovation and success. We partner with changemakers to support industry-wide moves to improve our professional culture.
The AIAS Foundation was founded to address the lack of representation in the interactive entertainment industry. Beginning in 2010, the Foundation began providing scholarships to university-level students interested in pursuing careers in gaming. As we grow, we’ve learned that financial support is not enough to change the status quo – students and professionals are seeking support from impactful mentors, meaningful network access and cutting edge education.
In 2016, we focus our efforts on WomenIn, our initiative to promote an increase in women in the workforce for the interactive entertainment industry. Through women in we seek to involve up and coming students and aspiring professionals in all aspects of our programming.
As we ramp up our activities, become a contributor and join our mailing list to keep current with our coming programming.
