Now in it's sixth year, Sony has again begun accepting submissions for its G.I.R.L. game design competition. The winner of the competition will receive a $10,000 scholarship towards tuition and educational expenses where the student is enrolled. The winner will also be able to take advantage of a paid internship at Sony Online Entertainment's HQ in San Diego. This internship runs for up to 10 weeks.

"At SOE, we believe that diversity is one of our keys to success and it is truly woven into the fabric of who we are as a company," said Laura Naviaux , Senior Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing, Sony Online Entertainment. "We want to help make the games industry even that much more approachable and our goal with the G.I.R.L. Scholarship is to provide an easy way to usher even more women into the industry."

All entries must be received by March 29, 2013 and applicants need to register here:

This is great - if I had any daughters, they'd totally be doing this. Or if I was actually in a videogame undergrad program, *I* could actually do this (minimum age is 18, but didn't see a mention of a max age which is cool). FYI - they are also on Twitter (https://twitter.com/SOE_GIRL) and Facebook (http://tinyurl.com/SOE-GIRL).
