Bond Student Awarded Prestigious Women In Games Scholarship

In February Bond University Arts student Jaymee Mak was awarded a prestigious Women in Games Scholarship over a field of nearly 300 applicants, commencing her studies on 24 June.

Each year the Vancouver Film School, Canada’s premier entertainment arts institution and one of the most distinguished worldwide, presents the Women in Games Scholarship, encouraging more female computer games designers to enter this largely male dominated profession.

Worth almost $50,000, the Women in Games Scholarship is the first and only of its kind in the world, and provides full tuition for an aspiring female game designer to attend VFS’s acclaimed one-year Game Design program.

Previous winners include Shannon Lee (Microsoft/BigPark) from Canada, Annie Dickerson (Digido Interactive) from the United States, and current VFS student Larissa Baptista from Brazil – all proof of the international impact of the scholarship and the talent it attracts.
