With League of Legends as their game of choice, Robert Morris University (RMU) proudly state that they are "the first college to offer scholarships and create an eSports varsity team."

First announced on Friday June the 20th, 2014 - RMU are offering scholarships covering 50% of tuition and 50% of room and board costing, asking people to email in for applications.

Sponsored by DX Racer, Pwnt Wear, ASUS, Cooler Master and CM Storm, it's exciting to see this kind of advancement being made in the competitive scene. Coming from an eSports background myself, a vast majority of the competitive community is made up of university students, meaning it only makes sense to market to this target audience by sponsors and game manufacturers.

There are many programs around supporting university clubs and events, but this is the first scholarship offering from the university directly.
