Over the course of this past year, many of our team members have been spending time participating in education-related initiatives. We’ve contributed to events such as the LSU student Animation Jam, the YouthForce NOLA Career Expo, and job opportunity discussions at our local community college. These events have given our team members a powerful opportunity to interact with and mentor potential future members of the industry that we love.
These experiences have also encouraged us to look for other ways that we can help inspire and encourage young people interested in 3D, so we’re happy to announce that we’re launching the TurboSquid Scholarship! Our first scholarship will be awarded to the student who writes the best essay on the following topic– “The Importance of Diversity in the 3D Industry.” We’re looking forward to seeing how these potential 3D artists of the future can inspire us with their voices, and we’ll share the winner with all of you in August. We plan on awarding multiple scholarships per year, so stay tuned for more updates.
