Australia’s first college esports grant has touched base, with the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane reporting it will grant five $10,000 grants for League of Legends in 2019. The cash will help bolster understudies’ college contemplates and esports preparing.
QUT is likewise home to Australia’s first official college supported esports program, and the primary committed on-grounds gaming field.
The QUT esports club was established by Michael Trotter and Dylan Poulus in 2016 when they were brain science understudies. Michael, now the QUT esports co-organizer, said gamers who needed one of the $10,000 grants needed to get past a two-advance aggressive process.
“The first step is to get an application in by November 16 for a 2019 QUT Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship for Elite Athletes,” he said.
“Those applicants will then battle it out on January 5 at the selection trials at our new QUT Esports Arena for a place on our five-member 2019 OCS team.” As if the League of Legends solo queue ladder wasn’t competitive enough.
