UCLA Game Lab Summer Institute
Hello from the UCLA Game Lab Summer Institute!
The UCLA Game Lab Summer Institute introduces high school students to game-making as a form of artistic practice, teaching them the techniques and tools that will help them develop analog and digital games that reflect their own creative voice and vision. No previous game-making skills are required, but students with an interest in games and in the visual arts in particular will find the curriculum especially stimulating and rewarding.
The Summer Institute program is committed to diversity, and we welcome students of all cultural, racial, gender, linguistic, geographic, and socioeconomic backgrounds and physical abilities. Scholarships are available for students, as well.Two scholarships are potentially available for students who register. Qualified students in the state of California are eligible for Summer Scholars Support (https://www.summer.ucla.edu/summerscholarssupport), a need and merit based scholarship offered by the UCLA Summer Sessions Office. A limited number of full and partial scholarships are available to support enrollment in a single academic course or eligible Precollege Summer Institutes.
The Diversity in Games scholarship, offered by the Game Lab Summer Institute, is a merit-based scholarship that waives 50 percent of the program fee for selected students. The intent of this scholarship is to ensure diversity and to assist students who may face cultural or historical biases in fields related to games and technology.
