Zulama Video Game Academy
Waterfront Learning, through a generous grant from the Benedum Foundation, is able to offer multiple scholarships to regional 9th and 10th grade students for study in the area of video game design and development. Students will complete Zulama's "Games Through the Ages" course from January through June (2012), attend a Game Design Studio Boot Camp hosted by staff at The Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University (ETC), and participate in the Three Rivers Educational Technology Conference (TRETC) in November, 2012.
Students applying must agree to participate in ALL THREE activities to receive the scholarship. Students must have daily access to an Internet connected computer. No additional software or materials are required by the student to participate. For full information about the technology requirements, view or download the Zulama Technical Requirements document.
The application window is now closed. The scholarship team is now reviewing all applications so that students can be notified by the end of the calendar year. On behalf of Zulama, the Benadum Foundation, and the Allegheny Intermediate Unit, we thank all supporters of this new initiative and look forward to working with our families to provide innovative, cutting edge, online learning opportunities for our region's students.
