CD Projekt has announced its second annual mentoring program called “Girls in the game!” (Dziewczyny w grze!). It will provide scholarships to 20 more talented candidates.
Organized by the Perspektywy Education Foundation and CD Projekt RED, the second edition of “Girls in the Game!” was announced on September 5. It is aimed at high school students, who would like to enter the games industry.
Candidates can apply by filling out a form by October 30, describing their education, skills, motivation for participating in the program, and personal achievements.
CD Projekt launched the first scholarship last October to “make it easier for girls to access our industry, and make it more diverse.”
According to a new announcement, organizers received 1,400 applications from young programmers, graphic designers, animators, and writers. They selected 20 candidates, who are now getting mentorship from CD Projekt RED to boost their hard and soft skills.
Just as in the first edition, 20 new winners will receive an annual scholarship of PLN 12,000 ($2,522) and a series of game development workshops. They will also be able to participate in events organized by the Perspektywy Women in Tech summit and CDPR.
