$10,000 fellowship available to aspiring game developers with disabilities


AbleGamers is a long-running nonprofit foundation devoted to advocating for accessibility in game design, and to working on ways to improve the lives of disabled people through games. Now, the group has launched a fellowship for college students with disabilities who want to break into game development.

The AbleGamers Fellowship will offer $10,000 in mentoring and scholarship funds to eligible computer science and game design undergrads and masters' students. The recipient of the fellowship will work on a case study focused on accessibility in video games, and how the medium is beneficial to people with disabilities.

The deadline for current applications is the end of October 2015; to learn more about applying, visit the official site.
