Applications for the 2010 G.I.R.L. Scholarship

Posted 25 January 2010 - 09:53 PM

I found this on the web and I thought any girl programmers interested in game programming, who are undergraduates that will not graduadte before spring 2011, would find this of interest.

GAR... I wonder if they'll accept a non-specific programming school... I would love to do video game design but I'm only a CS major.

@Tifa: not quite

When I saw "women into the field of video game production and design" I figured a degree in both-babeology would a regime of:
- elocution lessons
- gym work outs
- ta-ta implants

Sadly I read and they want more women BEHIND the screen. Tsk..
