The National Videogame Museum (NVM), based in Frisco, has established a scholarship program to award four $1,500 scholarships to high school students interested in pursuing a career in the videogame or technology fields.
Students must be enrolling in any four-year college or university beginning fall 2019. The museum hopes to be able to offer additional scholarships in the future years as they add to the scholarship funds.
Students may apply for one or more of these four scholarships, as qualified:
* Frisco, Texas Resident
With Frisco being home to the National Videogame Museum, the museum officials would like to award one applicant within Frisco city limits.
Applicants must be a current resident of the state of Texas.
Texas residents attending out-of-state colleges will be considered in this category.
*Texas Resident – Title 1 School Graduate
Applicants must be a current resident of the state of Texas, must be graduating from state of Texas designated Title 1 school and have a household income of $50,000 or less.
Women in Technology
Videogame design and technology fields have traditionally been male-dominated. In an effort to bring more diversity to these fields, this scholarship will be awarded to the most qualified female applicant. It is open to females across the U.S.
The application documents will walk candidates through the requirements for each scholarship. Applications are available on the museum’s website, and students must apply by April 1.
