A group of tabletop game creators who are working together to advance game design, called Tabletop Network, is offering a scholarship program to tabletop game designers who are “bringing new vision and underrepresented perspective to the industry”.
According to the site recipients of the award will receive the following:
A badge to the Tabletop Network conference ($450 value; which also includes admission to BGG.CON)
Hotel accommodations at Tabletop Network for three nights (Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday). There may be up to two scholars per room.
Reimbursement for up to $500 in air travel to and from the conference
In addition, and perhaps most importantly, New Voices Scholars will be matched up with an established game designer who will mentor them throughout the conference and introduce them to other industry professionals.
You can apply for The New Voices Scholarship at tabletopnetwork.com/new-voices-scholarship. Applications are due by June 30th. All applications will be reviewed by the Award Committee, and may require a follow-up phone or video interview. Winners will be announced in August.
