Education & Training Opportunities

GGW offers  four separate Programs that build an Educational Pyramid of core curriculum, business skills, and personal growth. Currently, our GGW Educational Opportunities are offered regionally throughout the United States.

Many of the classes are offered via scholarship, meaning no charge to the individual or their employer for the programs or courses. The consistent pre-requisite requirement for scholarship classes is a minimum of one to three years of employment in the gaming industry, depending on the course. Although the scholarship courses are without charge, there may be associated room or travel costs that the applicant or applicant’s organization may need to incur.

The applicant selection process is done by an independent subcommittee, of the Education Committee, which weighs the background of applicants, company and job diversity in the selection for each class.

By clicking on the different options below, you will find a detailed description of each of the programs. New dates and locations are added throughout the year, so once you determine which program fits your level, simply check the Current Education Opportunities page to either apply for an upcoming conference scholarship or learn when the next conference application process begins.
