EA Sports and NCAA Football are happy to announce that they are returning their fellowship program that debuted last year. The annual fellowship program provides former football student-athletes an opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the games industry as well as the business of sports. Two post-graduate football student-athletes will be given an opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge of the sport to the newest edition of the EA Sports NCAA Football videogame, through a sixteen-week full-time paid fellowship, commencing in January 2013. The positions will be based out of the EA Tiburon studio in Orlando, Fla. EA Sports will be accepting applications for the fellowship program beginning today.
“We are excited to continue the fellowship program with NCAA Football again this year,” said Cam Weber, GM of Football, EA SPORTS. “The addition of the football student-athletes through last year’s program proved to be successful, as their experience contributed to the depth and authenticity of our games. We look forward to working with the participants who are selected this year.”
This program is a great connection zone between the hardcore fans and the developers behind their favorite sports title. We can only hope that more developers will take notice of programs like this.
“We were very pleased with the success of last year’s fellowship and look forward to again providing former football student-athletes an opportunity to parlay their passion for the game to a unique young professional experience,” added Karl Benson, chair, NCAA Football.
