Overview

The Jody Gallagher Scholarship is open to students who are in Year 2, 3 or 4 of the BA (Hons) Computer Arts degree.

The one-year scholarship was established to provide £1250 in financial support to students who are from a low-income household and have overcame financial obstacles to attend Abertay. Students must demonstrate that they are in significant financial need, as well as showing their commitment to continue their studies at Abertay, and an interest in working in the computer games sector.

Further Information

The scholarship was established in memory of Abertay alum Jody Gallagher who passed away in early 2019. Jody studied Computer Arts between 2002 and 2004 before he went to work for companies such as Blade Interactive, Outplay, and 4J. He briefly set up his own games company and lectured on an ad-hoc basis at Dundee & Angus College.

Jody wanted to help students realise their passion for computer games so that they could continue to strive towards their chosen career. This Scholarship was set up to ease the financial burden for these students.

  • Be commencing year 2, 3 or 4 of the BA (Hons) Computer Arts Degree.
