League of Legends

Robert Morris University, a Chicago-based university that gives out 1,400 athletic and activity scholarships across its 10 Illinois campuses as a way of recruiting and retaining students, will be the first school in the country to offer about 30 athletic scholarships to students who play the League of Legends video game. Competitive League of Legends has sprung up at the high school and college levels as well. Collegiate Starleague, which runs national championships in three games — StarCraft II and Dota 2 are the others — has gone from about 20 schools at its start in 2009 to 550 schools today.

Robert Morris has a budget of about $450,000 to fund 30 or so annually renewed scholarships, some of which will be valued at about $19,000 - half the cost of Robert Morris' tuition and room and board. Competitive video gaming - otherwise known as eSports - has been around for decades, but the scene has exploded in the past five years. Top players have become celebrities through YouTube channels and live streaming, sometimes earning more than $100,000 a year. Check out the video with Kurt Melcher, an associate athletic director at Robert Morris University.

"It's a team sport," Melcher said. "There's strategy involved. You have to know your role in the game. Obviously it's not cardiovascular in any way, but it's mental. There are elements that go into it that are just like any other sport."
