  • They may also be awarded to students who contribute to the growth of Weber Esports. Such activities include broadcast, team management, or coaching.


Don't See Your Game/Title?

If you don't see your title it doesn't mean there isn't a team for it. It just means it is currently not being offered a scholarship and is otherwise known as a club team. The list of scholarship titles is subject to change so you are heavily encouraged to still participate in the club teams.
