SIP19 team selected – 4/12/19
SIP19 team selected
By Timothy Loew, Executive Director
Since 2012, applications to our annual Summer Innovation Program (SIP) have grown year over year in terms of quality, geographic reach, major, and diversity. This year we received applications from over 250 undergraduate and graduate students representing an 66 colleges and universities from around the world – making it one of our most competitive years ever.
Choosing only 25 as interns was very challenging. After many long hours of discussion, the committee selected a really talented group. This summer’s SIP19 team will be made up of interns from 16 institutions including Becker College, Berklee College of Music, Brown University, Cornell University, Emerson College, Lesley University, Letterkenny Institute of Technology (Ireland), Maine College of Art, MIT, Mt. Holyoke College, Northeastern University, RPI, RIT, School of Visual Arts, Wellesley College and WPI.
SIP19 begins on May 14 and concludes on August 11. Over those 12 weeks or so, with guidance from staff and industry mentors, SIP19 teams will be responsible for all the work necessary to prepare a game for launch. Simply put, there is no internship program like it in the world.
As in prior years, SIP19 interns will receive housing courtesy of Becker College as well as a modest stipend. Most importantly they will all receive the greatest game development experience of their lives. Sure, it may be a lot of work but it’s also a lot of fun – we can’t wait to get started.
UPDATE – In addition to the SIP19 interns, we’re also pleased to welcome 3 more to SIP19 Extension (SIP19X). These 3 come from RISD and Becker.
