It’s a new season of CheckpointXP: On Campus! With the crew getting back in the swing of things, here are the biggest updates this week when it comes to the world of collegiate esports…
ESA ESPORTS SCHOLARSHIP
The Entertainment Software Association, the organization that brings E3 to gamers every summer, is now joining in on the college esports rush by establishing a scholarship fund aimed to support women and minority students interested in getting established in collegiate esports. This marks the first time that the ESA has gotten involved, and made scholarship money available for esports specifically, in addition to expanding scholarships for Computer/Video Game Arts to include LGBTQ+ students as well.
For more information on when deadlines are and where to apply, check out the new CheckpointXP: On Campus.
