Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and senior adviser to President Donald Trump, has been awarded a $1.6 million educational game certification from the American Educational Games Association (AEGA), the website that certifies and monitors educational games, according to a new report.
Kushner’s certification was confirmed in a statement by the company, which provides games to education providers and publishers including Disney, Pixar, Microsoft, EA, and Activision, as well as colleges and universities.
“This is a major milestone in our ongoing relationship with Jared and his business partners, which includes the launch of the first of many new educational games in 2018, and the addition of the AQA’s first educational games to its portfolio,” the statement read.
The certification was first announced in March, when the game maker announced a $200,000 donation to the Education Games Alliance, which helps establish and support educational game programs.
Kashner and his partners have previously donated to educational game groups including the New York State Board of Education and the American Association of University Women, according of the report.
The AQA says that its first certification will help education software providers better market their products to the public, “develop and sell game-related educational content and services to schools and teachers, and provide the opportunity for consumers to engage in educational gaming.”
Kushnier’s educational games are available on the AQAs website, and on Google Play, Apple App Store, and Amazon.com.
The company has said it will make a decision on whether to continue supporting AQAs certification process by the end of the year.
Killer Instinct, which also requires a $2,500 payment to be certified, also requires $2 million.
The game is available on Google and Apple App stores, and Google Play and Apple iTunes.
