Games for Change and Endless Network are excited to announce a new Learn to Code Games Fellowship for college and university-level game designers. Through a competitive submission process, three pairs of student teams will be selected to participate in a two-month Fellowship, during which they will develop ‘learn to code’ games, with support from industry mentors.

Each Fellow will be awarded a $4,000 stipend for their participation and final projects will be shared publicly as free, open-source games through the Games for Change and Endless Studios’ product websites. Read the full Fellowship Guidelines for more information - including creative and technical game guidelines.

Apply to the Learn to Code Games Fellowship by October 16.

The goal of the Learn to Code Games Fellowship is to encourage the development of games that teach youth how to code, equipping them with in-demand skills they need in an increasingly technology-driven world. Coding is the language of the future and to be prepared for the world they are entering, youth need to know how to shape the technology that influences their lives, rather than be shaped by it.
