The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) recently partnered with Full Sail to award the International Game Developers Association Foundation/Full Sail University Game Development Scholarship. The scholarship gives one student full tuition towards Full Sail’s Game Development Bachelor’s Degree program. The recipient of the scholarship is James Burns of Miami, Florida, who was recognized at last week’s GDC Online conference in Austin, Texas. He starts courses in November.
The IGDA Foundation and Full Sail announced the scholarship last year, and a nationwide application process identified a student passionate about and exhibiting talent for software development in the gaming industry.
