“I think education is so important. We wanted to encourage bright engineers to think about what they can do for the cinema industry”
About the Computer Science Scholarship
GDC Scholarship is intended to motivate, encourage, and inspire today’s engineers or engineers-to-be to think more about media technology specifically when it comes to cinemas.
In 2012, Dr. Chong began paying it forward with its GDC Scholarship. Granted to between 30 and 50 students every year, the scholarship is given in cooperation with the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) to undergraduate and postgraduate students from three USTC colleges: the School of Computer Science and Technology, the School of Information Science and Technology, and the School of Software Engineering.
