G.I.R.L. scholarship winners get H1Z1 internship

    
21

Daybreak’s eight-year-running Gamers in Real Life (G.I.R.L.) scholarship program is done evaluating applicants and ready to proclaim the winners. That’s right, winners plural; this year, the studio decided to expand G.I.R.L. to include two categories, one for art and design and the other for programming and engineering.

The studio named the 2015 recipients today: Grace Kim and Cherylynn Lima. Both will receive $5,000 toward their higher education as well as the opportunity to intern for 10 weeks at Daybreak. The studio said that it will put both of the women to work on H1Z1.

“Both winners truly embraced our G.I.R.L. program goals through their essays, original concept art, and code base for an original game feature,” Chief Publishing Officer Laura Naviaux said. “We are proud to have them represent this year’s program and provide them with opportunities in the gaming industry.”

Lord Zorvan boredinBC hardy83 The phrasing is clear to me.  They are offering the winners a paid 10 week internship.  They used the phrase “given the opportunity to be hired” to make it clear that the winners are not obligated to accept the internship if they did not want to.

When I see “G.I.R.L” … I remember it as it used to be known as code for “Guy in real life”. :P

And if she’s smart, in 3 months she’ll start shopping her resume around to other developers that will actually exist in a year. Daybreak doesn’t have that bright of a future ahead of them.

paragonlostinspace boredinBC Anytime.  It’s easy and sometimes fun to hate on DBG, but it’s great to see some very deserving women get some recognition and experience from them!  :)

Good deal, so many internship programs don’t pay and they need to. Thanks for sharing that BoredinBC. :)

It would seem that it’s a paid internship! :)
