Our Corporate Ambassador Creative Assembly has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to supporting education by awarding two scholarships to students.
The Creative Assembly Legacy Scholarship has been awarded to Daniel Gething from County Durham and Rebecca Arachchiae from Gateshead, both first year BA (Hons) Computer Games Design students at Teesside University.
Alongside the scholarship, Teesside University and Creative Assembly have a partnership to see excellent games education delivered to Teesside students. Creative Assembly is involved in shaping the curriculum and degree programmes to ensure students are learning the requisite skills for a successful career in the industry, providing student access to mentors and guest lectures and expanding opportunities for disadvantaged people to work in the games industry.
“Education is one of our five ‘Spaces of Action’, it is vital to creating a fair playing field for women in games and esports,” said Women in Games CEO Marie-Claire Isaaman. “So we celebrate and fully support initiatives like the Creative Assembly Legacy Scholarship and look forward to learning more about this important initiative.”
