Roll Call! It’s Our First-Ever 1,000 Dreams Fund – Twitch Student Scholarship Announcement
We are so excited to celebrate a new group of young talents in content creation! But first, a little background.
In partnership with Twitch Student, 1,000 Dreams Fund launched our new 1,000 Dreams Fund Twitch Student Scholarship specifically to support women and non-men student content creators on Twitch who have career goals of working in the broadcasting industry — whether in-front or behind the camera!
Our new Twitch Student Scholarship provides financial assistance in the form of $1,000 micro-grants to help with expenses such as travel to gaming conventions, educational conferences, hardware upgrades, and instructional programs related to creative or artistic pursuits.
In our inaugural year, we had hundreds upon hundreds of amazing applications from creators across the globe, making it very difficult to pick our first class of 24 winners!
Here’s who we heard from:
- 171 different schools!
- 14 different countries!
- Schools from 30+ states!
So without further ado, let’s meet our inaugural group of 24 1DF-Twitch Student Scholarship winners:
Plus, we were able to make a VERY special surprise for one of our winners for 2021 @LoveBubbles. Check out this clip that is sure to make you smile!
