Clubs Have Until May 31st to Apply for a Chance to Expand Their Role

The deadline for college gaming clubs interested in applying for a Dungeons & Dragons “Expand Your Role” Grant is fast approaching.  Applications must be received by May 31, 2007, at 3 PM EST.

Wizards of the Coast, Inc., the Seattle-based company behind DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, is granting dungeon masters, rogues, clerics, and halflings an exciting opportunity to enhance their roleplaying experience:  The Expand Your Role Grants Program.  Open to roleplaying clubs at colleges and universities across the U.S., this program – which offers a unique opportunity for gamers to further their RPG dreams – will award up to 20 stipends ranging from $50-$1,000.  In addition, one lucky club will be named DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Club of the Year and its members will receive a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – to have a D&D game designer join their club as guest dungeon master and run a campaign.

Roleplaying clubs across the country connect people each and every day.  These clubs cultivate a sense of imagination, empowerment and camaraderie in their members, and transcend all age levels – childhood through adult.

“No role in any RPG is too small,” said Scott Rouse, senior brand manager, for DUNGEONS & DRAGONS at Wizards of the Coast.  “Everyone works together to achieve a common goal.  Since DUNGEONS & DRAGONS is the original – and most popular – roleplaying game, we wanted to celebrate the team spirit of our nation’s roleplaying clubs by providing them the resources they need to enhance their experiences.”

Expand Your Role Grants can be used to:

  • Launch a Web site
  • Advertise/promote their club locally
  • Rent, expand or accessorize a space for club gatherings
  • Send club members to gaming conventions
  • Provide food for club gatherings

To apply for a grant, applicants should submit an essay of 500 words or less, along with four photos, explaining how a grant from D&D would benefit their club, provide brief background/history on the club and describe how D&D has made a positive impact on their lives. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, and must submit proof of their club’s affiliation with a college or university.  All entries must be received by May 31, 2007.  For more information and complete rules, visit www.wizards.com.
