Annual CGTrader Scholarship
This scholarship is sponsored by the company CGTrader. CGTrader is the largest 3D model platform for computer graphics, virtual/augmented reality and gaming, backed by a strong professional designer community. CGTrader gives talented 3D designers the opportunity to showcase their work, get valuable feedback from the community, learn from their peers and interact in a designer-friendly environment.
To enter this scholarship, students will write and submit an original essay of 500-1000 words on the topic “Our life on a spaceship: the future of mankind”. We want to encourage students to think about how life will change when people are confined to weightlessness in limited spaces. What devices will they use? How will their minds and languages change when notions taken for granted like ‘up’ and ‘down’ or ‘day’ and ‘night’ no longer make intuitive sense? How will their environment look, feel, and operate? Will social structures revert to those of our ancestors when people start living in smaller groups, again?
