The AIAS Foundation is proud to announce that we have opened our applications for the 2015 AIAS Scholarships.

The Randy Pausch Scholarship was established in 2008 to honor the memory of Carnegie Mellon University Computer Science Professor Dr. Randy Pausch, who is best known for his book and video titled The Last Lecture (and the video is embedded at the bottom of this page). The Pausch Scholarships provide two $2,500 awards each year to students who are preparing for careers in the games industry, including animation, art, engineering, game design, game direction, music composition, programming and sound design.

The Mark Beaumont Scholarship, which also provides two annual $2,500 scholarships, was established in 2010 to honor the memory of former Capcom North America and Europe COO Mark Beaumont, who held executive roles in the games industry for over 25 years and was widely respected by his peers and teams. The Beaumont Scholarships are targeted at students studying for careers in business management, law, marketing, public relations, and sales.

All four scholarship winners are invited to participate in our mentorship program at the 2016 DICE Summit and at the DICE Awards ceremony, and the picture above shows the 2014 Scholars at the 2015 DICE Awards with myself and USC's Tracy Fullerton.
