College student Kyla Gorman was awarded $10,000 by the Penny Arcade Scholarship Program, which she plans to dedicate to pursuing a game design degree at the University of Southern California. The annual Penny Arcade Scholarship, established in 2006, recognizes one standout college student who exhibits the potential to positively impact the gaming industry. "I'll be forever thankful for the opportunity the PA Scholarship has given me to attend USC, one of the world's best game design curriculums," said Gorman. "I've already been able work on several trial games including a board game called Spacewolves that I designed with some friends. Look out gamer community, I'm coming up!" Gorman previously attended Hamilton College in Clinton, New York, where she majored in computer science and participated in Hamilton's Senior Fellowship program. Applications for next year's Penny Arcade Scholarship will be available next spring.
