Room Escape Annual Scholarship

Room Escape Fairfax is proud to announce we are offering a scholarship of $500 to a college or university student who demonstrates a passion for hard work and a determination to succeed. As one of the top rated room escape adventures in the area, we want to give back to the next generation of great thinkers. Unlike other escape rooms, we don’t simply buy factory made escape plans and puzzles, but strategically design and hand-make them ourselves. In this business it takes an entrepreneurial spirit, IT and programming mind, and a good business ethic. We would like to support a student studying any one of these fields as we know the value education will make on creating a life doing what you love; just as every day we love creating mind-challenging adventures for teams, special events, and students.
