NVM Scholarship

The National Videogame Museum is proud to announce the first annual NVM College Scholarship! While the NVM is devoted to chronicling and preserving our industry's rich past, we also look to contribute to the future of the videogame and technology industries through our new scholarship program. There are four different scholarship opportunities available to high school graduates pursuing careers in gaming or technology-based fields.  Three of the four are limited to Texas residents but the fourth is open to women across the country.  

How To Apply 

Applications will be accepted until April 1, 2018, and should be submitted to the e-mail address info@nvmusa.org. Please download the application here and follow the instructions included.
