Everyone should have the right to create

At Unity, we believe that in order for a creative community to thrive, it must be open to people of all backgrounds, genders, and perspectives.

Recent travel restrictions and discrimination against certain nationalities have threatened our core values and impeded the global collaboration, learning, and progress that is vital to our industry and its continued success.

Unity Without Borders is a sponsorship program supporting the impacted developers who are not able to move freely and attend industry events like GDC.

The sponsorship:

A trip to Unite Europe

Unity will be offering 50 developers a trip to Unite Europe - a global conference where you can:

  • Unlock the full creative potential of the Unity engine
  • Meet up and brainstorm with fellow Unity devs, experts, and industry leaders
  • Get a peek at what Unity will be providing in the future

For each sponsored participant, Unity will provide a Schengen Visa sponsorship packet and reimbursement for visa fees, plus a round-trip airline ticket to Amsterdam from your country of residence, four nights of hotel accommodation, a per diem allowance, and a ticket to Unite Europe in Amsterdam (June 26-29, 2017). For more details about what is included, read the FAQ.

How to apply

Application submissions will no longer be accepted after March 19, 2017 at 12:00 AM CET.

Note that if you are located in Syria or Iran, US government regulations will not allow Unity to permit you to create a Unity ID;
instead please email unitywithoutborders@unity3d.com.
Please note that as a condition of sponsorship, you will need a Schengen Visa, which you will need to personally apply for and obtain from an embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (or another embassy that can issue you a Schengen Visa). A condition will be placed on this visa that restricts the time you are permitted to stay in the Schengen Area.
