Briefs | 09/26/2007 1:04 pm EDT

Interactive entertainment software company Electronic Arts Inc. has announced the three students awarded EA-sponsored scholarships to the new Masters of Digital Media program at Great Northern Way campus in Vancouver. Matt Jenkins of Langley BC, Tarek El-Eryan of Surrey BC and Karthik Venkateshan of Karnataka, India will all receive $20,000 from EA to attend the 20-month masters program designed to teach students the professional skills required to be effective creators, practitioners, and senior managers in the digital media industry. The degree, which is one of the few of its kind in the world, is accredited by Vancouver's four major post secondary institutions: University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design, and the British Columbia Institute of Technology. The scholarship money is part of the $1 million (Cdn) grant to the MDM Program that was announced by EA earlier this year, which includes an endowment and numerous scholarships. In addition to the scholarships and paid internships at the company's development studios, EA will provide mentoring programs and supply teachers/lecturers from its executive ranks.
