POKIMANE LAUNCHES $100K SCHOLARSHIP TO HELP STUDENT GAMERS

WHAT HAPPENED?

The creator has come together with American Video Game League, producers of collegiate esports events and content, to give out $100k across 10 students.

Half of the scholarship is being paid by Pokimane herself, with new partner AVGL matching her $50k.

Those interested in receiving the funding have to submit a short video that lays out their “background and goals as a gamer.”

With both of my parents being teachers, I’m especially proud to be launching another scholarship to help students with a gaming passion.

I know firsthand that it’s not easy to balance schoolwork and a gaming career. I hope that this scholarship will alleviate that stress for aspiring gaming content creators and players.

Pokimane recently pledged to try and help “fix the gaming and esports industry” that she’s helping students work towards entering with these scholarships.
