Games scholarships from CDV

German publisher supports gaming students

Over the last few years a number of courses in game design have popped up at various universities across Europe, and now publisher CDV is taking the obvious next step by offering scholarships to German students wanting to study level design at the Games Academy in Berlin. "We have to fight a battle due to the huge lack of new talent in our business", according to CDV founder and CEO Wolfgang Gaebler. "By endowing this scholarship we want to give new talent a chance to pursue a highly qualified degree as Game Level Designers."

The first round of scholarships will be awarded this year, with the lucky students entering the Berlin Games Academy as soon as March. If the program is a success CDV are considering expanding it beyond their native Germany and across the rest of Europe, so stay tuned for the latest information.
