Social gaming company Zynga announced that it will give three entrance scholarships totaling $20,000 to students enrolling in the upcoming Fall semester of The Masters of Digital Media (MDM) Program. MDM is a Master's degree jointly awarded by the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and the British Columbia Institute of Technology. Zynga's scholarships will be awarded to students entering the areas of Game Design, Art, and Programming. "At MDM, we're thrilled that Zynga is keen to support our Masters of Digital Media students,” said MDM Executive Director Dr. Gerri Sinclair. "The backing of an industry leader such as Zynga is a testament to the quality of the students joining our two-year program, and we thank the company for their support not only of our program, but of the digital media industry in Vancouver and throughout North America." The scholarship initiative is the second partnership between Zynga and the MDM Program. Previously, Zynga sponsored a design competition in which MDM students and faculty created and prototyped a social network game. All MDM enrolling students demonstrating exceptional grades and talent in their respective fields will be considered for Zenga's scholarships. The application deadline for MDM's Fall semester is June 30, 2009.
