This may be old news, but I thought I'd share any way.
Penny Arcade is offering a $10,000 scholarship for students who plan to work in the video game industry. You need to send in 2 recommendations, a 2 page essay, and stuff that can be easily done by filling out forms (current transcript, enrollment verification, etc.).
The ESA is also offering a few scholarships for women and minorities.
I found out about both of these from gamingangel over at the girl_gamers community on LJ.
I've been working on my essay for Penny Arcade since Saturday and I should have finished it by now, but I keep getting distracted (this post is a distraction). My games need attention! :(
