IGDN, in cooperation with Double Exposure, sponsors a scholarship to enable diverse game designers to attend Metatopia, the game design conference. Metatopia is held each November in Morristown, NJ. In addition to our direct contribution, we crowdfund additional money each year to be able to send a larger cohort of designers to Metatopia. The scholarship covers travel, lodging, and a conference badge so that designers from underrepresented backgrounds can show off their games ad make connections with industry professionals.
