A variety of scholarships are available for potential students, including needs-based scholarships for those who may not have the financial freedom to further their education.

"The scholarships provided by this non-profit organization are an outreach to the community aimed at encouraging the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs," the organization says in a release to the media.

The Australian-based non-profit organization, which has campuses in Seattle, Wash. and Lafayette, La., is a two year training college that offers courses in game art, design, programming, film, 3D design, and visual effects.
