Xbox Devs Start Student Fund for USC Interactive Media & Games Division

Posted on April 28, 2013 AT 10:24am

Two members of the original Microsoft Xbox team, Kevin Bachus and Chanel Summers, have founded a student fund geared toward “innovation in interactive entertainment.”

The Bachus-Summers Fund for Innovation in Interactive Entertainment  has been established at the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts Interactive Media & Games Division.

“There has never been a greater opportunity than there is today for talented and passionate individuals to come together and create the legendary game studios of tomorrow,” stated Bachus. “The Bachus-Summers Fund for Innovation in Interactive Entertaiment is meant to do two things: to recognize and reward the most innovative work by a student in the Interactive Media & Games Division and to encourage that student to build their own future, for themselves and for others, after leaving school.”

“I’ve seen first-hand that the most meaningful work is always achieved when visionaries take risks and break boundaries,” Summers added. “Creative and talented individuals must be allowed to realize their dreams, regardless of resources.”
