The video games industry is usually seen as a bro-ey, male-dominated one.

But U.S. games giant Bethesda wants this to change. It has donated US$100,000 to the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) Foundation which provides scholarships to women and minority communities to study computer science or games production, "to do our part to support the next generation of game developers." The donation will go towards supporting 33 scholarships.

The Computer Science and Video Game Arts Scholarships are offered for full-time undergraduate study at accredited four-year colleges and universities in the United States.

The ESA Foundation says it has provided almost US$1 million in scholarships over the past decade.
