Scholastic Esports: More Than Just Gaming

This session will explore how scholastic esports programs provide students with meaningful career and STEM education alongside their tournament experience. The Morgan State University Esports program case study will be used to exhibit the positive impact of esports.  Founded in 2020, the MSU Bears Esports program has been recognized as a trailblazer for HBCU esports as they have 240+ members, won 12 championships, and secured around $450,000 in donations, scholarships, and winnings directly to the students as an unsponsored/unfunded program.
