Our mission at RoyaGames.com is to let people enjoy innovative in-browser gaming experiences. That is only possible thanks to the countless game developers, digital designers, and software engineers whose creativity and passion allows us to provide thousands of free games. Out of gratefulness to community, and to help foster the next generation of digital media developers, we decided to give a hand to students who are working to build the future of this field and thus established an annual Student Scholarship with which we give away $1,500 every year to one student.
$1,500 Worldwide Student Scholarship
Both current students and rising freshmen are eligible for this scholarship. The $1,500 scholarship will be awarded to one student and the money will be transferred to their University to go towards the tuition fee.
