Wooga’s Educational Expedition

Unite Europe scholarships for female students

We at Wooga would like to encourage and strengthen the presence of women in engineering, especially in the games industry and celebrate the great talents out there. For this effort we created this scholarship program for female future engineers and will be sending 5 students to UNITE Europe in Amsterdam (27th - 29th June, 2017). Unity is the world’s leading game engine for cross platform game development, which we’re also using at Wooga to build all our games. And at UNITE engineers from all over Europe meet to discuss the latest trends in game development.

With this scholarship we hope to help women grow their network within the industry, showcase their projects and have a smooth transition into work life.
Show us how passionate you are about developing games by submitting a playable level made with Unity.
