|The games industry has multiple scholarships and mentorships for students planning a career in interactive entertainment. How can faculty and administrators help their students earn more of these opportunities? Many qualified students don't know about even well-publicized programs, and students who do apply often make critical mistakes in their submissions. Some programs that give no cash awards may actually have the greatest positive impact on a student's career. In this short talk Don Daglow, President of the AIAS Foundation, will share tips for faculty to share with students on finding and applying for scholarships and mentorships, and mistakes to avoid.
