eSports: An Upcoming College Sport

Came across this really interesting video from AJ+ that talks about schools in the US giving out eSports scholarships. The first school to give out eSports scholarships was at Robert Morris University in Chicago and now there are four other US colleges that have joined with many others that seem to be interested. Most of these scholarships are around $19000 and it seems to be something that is getting bigger and bigger. It will be very interesting to see if this does catch on and who knows, maybe one day Western will have an eSports scholarship and team!
