Robert Morris University offers a scholarship of reportedly 25% of tuition, around $6,000, to members of their video game collegiate sports team which plans to compete at the professional level in League of Legends. The school is building an eSports arena and training center, and has recruited famed pro gaming coach AGeNt as head coach of their esports program, which came to be when the school's women's soccer coach was reminiscing about playing Starcraft II in college and discovered esports. Apparently, teams will only practice for three to four hours a day, five days a week.

A story in the Wall Street Journal tells the story of one of those students, if you're interested, or you can check out Robert Morris University's site if you think you've got a shot.

Some people think I'm crazy for wishing that summer was over... I'd beg to differ. September can get here any time now!
