NEW: Women in Esports Scholarships

The University of Roehampton has announced a new Women in Esports scholarship, the first women-focused esports scholarships to be introduced in Europe. 

With up to four scholarships available to first year, each worth up to £2,000 a year, the programme aims to improve diversity and inclusivity in the esports industry and to inspire the next generation of women esports professionals.

Initiated by Roehampton Esports, the University’s esports department, the scholarships will offer those accepted onto the scheme a number of opportunities such as a dedicated mentorship scheme, allowing them to connect with senior industry figures.

This is the second type of esports scholarship to be launched by the University of Roehampton, after it became the first UK University to offer esports scholarships in 2018.

As part of the new scholarships, Roehampton Esports will also be partnering with a host of organisations including Women in Games, the National University Esports League (NUEL), Cat Collective, Special Effect and London Esports to bring new opportunities for scholarship recipients, such as work placements and professional esports and industry training. Together with Women in Games, the University of Roehampton will also host weekly women-only esports sessions open to all women in the University, as well as further networking sessions.
