Ever thought universities would be handing out Fornite scholarships? Well, it’s happening. Ohio’s Ashland University’s new eSports program is the first in the US to offer player scholarships for battle royals game Fornite.

They’re be planning a four-player team alongside teams for Overwatch and League of Legends when the program debuts in the collegiate eSports area next fall.
