Q: How much is the scholarship award?
A: The student scholarship winners will each receive $2,500 while professional scholars will receive a travel stipend to another video games conference. All scholars participate in a year-long mentorship program and are eligible to participate in a professional training and networking opportunity at the 2021 D.I.C.E. Summit and 24th D.I.C.E. Awards show.
Q: Can I apply to these scholarships if I do not intend to work in the video game industry but am interested in law, marketing, art or design for other industries?
A: Applicants pursuing careers outside of the video games industry will not be considered.
Q: Can application items be submitted separately?
A: Application materials must be submitted electronically through the online application form. If you have issues with letters of recommendation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: If I apply to more than one scholarship, can I provide one set of transcripts and recommendation letters?
A: While we discourage you from submitting applications to multiple opportunities, we require full application packages for each program. This means you must provide a transcript and separate letters of recommendation for each program. Copies of the same letters of recommendation will not be accepted.
Q: Can I email my application package?
A: All scholarship applications must be submitted using the online form.
Q: Can my cumulative GPA be lower than 3.3 if my GPA within my major is 3.3 or higher?
A: Your cumulative GPA must be 3.3. All submissions with a lower GPA will not be considered.
Q: Who qualifies to submit a letter of recommendation on my behalf?
A: Letters of recommendation must come from someone who has served in an academic or professional advisory/supervisorial role. This means that only letters from professors and supervisors will be accepted. Letters from colleagues, long-time friends and acquaintances will not be accepted.
Q: What qualifies as verification of enrollment?
A: You may submit your schedule print out, a letter from your school’s registrar, or a transcript that shows current enrollment.
