Change Your Life With A Scholarship And Be A Sporting Legend
Colleges Offers Funded Scholarships To Talented Athletes
You can receive two different types of sports scholarship:
Full scholarship – the university pays for all your tuition, accommodation, food, books and everything related to your sport. This is commonly known as a “full ride”
Partial scholarship – the university offers you a deal that will cover some, but not all, of the costs associated with attending the university. For example, when attending a university costs $50,000 and the coach is giving you a scholarship worth $45,000, then this is a partial scholarship as there is a $5,000 shortfall you will have to contribute towards the costs of attending the university.
A Life Changing Opportunity In the Pool And On The Campus
One of the fastest-growing sports in the world isn’t played on grass or ice—it’s played on a computer. Short for electronic sports, esports are team-based video game competitions watched live by online spectators on Twitch. Like traditional sports, players wear team jerseys, compete in spacious arenas and communicate with teammates and coaches as the game unfolds. By 2021, the professional esports industry is expected to generate $1.65 billion in revenue and capture a global fanbase of 557 million people.
And college esports aren’t far behind. In 2014, varsity esports began when Robert Morris University launched a scholarship-sponsored League of Legends team. In 2017, the University of Utah became the first Power Five school to launch a varsity esports program. And starting fall 2018, Harrisburg University of Science and Technology became the first school to offer 16 full-ride gaming scholarships for its entire varsity roster. Today, 96 colleges and universities are members of the National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE), the only official governing body for varsity esports. And that list continues to grow.
