Video Game Scholarships

By: David Murillo

Childhood

  • Our childhood should not be taken away from us
  • School gives us less time to play video games
  • More scholarships for video games would encourage more students to be to enjoy video games

Athleticism and Training

  • To become a professional in video gaming it takes as much time as it would take to become a professional in any sport
  • Video gamers require fast reaction times just like athletes
  • Video gamers require high levels of skill
  • Video gamers should receive the same amounts of scholarships as athletes that participate in a sport

Popularity

  • Video games have a lot of popularity even without scholarships
  • League of Legends has 70 million people per month
  • If video games can become this popular without much attention in college, they should be allowed more scholarships
