To maintain its interest in gaming education, the US Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administration renewed a five-year grant this week with Becker College in Worcester, Massachusetts. Becker College is the home of MassDigi, an academic program that focuses on the entrepreneurial side of game development, including a 12-week summer program where attendees take a concept to a market ready title. The Economic Development Administration's grant is for the amount of $583,000.

This announcement actually renews a five-year grant MassDiGi received in 2011. In a press release announcing the news, MassDigi says the funds will be used "to promote entrepreneurship, academic cooperation and economic development across the state's video and digital games ecosystem." The school also hosts an annual Game Challenge pitch competition where aspiring developers can show off their games and refine ideas ahead of a proper launch.
