Question Regarding Dev Grant System

Hello, I wasn’t sure where to ask this so here goes…

When applying for an Unreal Dev Grant, does the project you link/upload need to be done with a commercial license of the software you’ve used to create the assets or can you use educational versions and simply recreate the project once you’ve received a grant?

Asking because I would be happy to spend the time required to develop a demo project to apply for a grant to allow me to develop the final project later, but I want to know first because if not I’ll find a way to obtain commercial licensing beforehand.

Thanks for any feedback! <3

Hey AltCodes!

I don’t think Dev Grants are given only to commercial projects so you’ll probably be fine. IIRC Epic has handed them out for educational purposes. Good luck. =)
