Epic Games Announces $100 Million MegaGrants Program at GDC
Starting their keynote at this year's GDC with a bang, Epic Games announced the MegaGrants initiative – a program that rewards monetary support of up to $100 million to ambitious game developers, media-content creators, students, and teachers. Epic Games founded a similar project back in 2015, called Unreal Dev Grants, which provided $5 million to similar innovators. The ceremony for that program concluded earlier this week.
MegaGrants awards range from $5,000 to $500,000. Recipients will continue to have sole ownership over their projects and have the freedom to publish their work through any and all avenues. Looking to break into the industry using your particular skill set? Head here to apply for a grant.
