  2. A year after becoming the first public university to launch a collegiate esports program in Texas, the University of North Texas will become the first public university in the state to offer scholarships to current and upcoming students. Scholarships totaling $20,000 will be awarded to 25 to 30 students who will compete in the 2019-20 varsity season. “Very quickly, and thanks to some incredible hard work and dedication, we knew that we had a few incredibly gifted and hardworking students on our own campus,” Dylan Wray, UNT esports coordinator, wrote in an email to the Observer. “Scholarships will give us an edge to recruit and maintain top athletes at UNT, so that we remain a competitive leader in the collegiate scene.” Varsity tryouts for the 2019-20 season will take place online Aug. 2-16 for four varsity teams, which include Blizzard Entertainment's first-person shooter Overwatch, the card battle game Hearthstone, Riot Games' online battle arena League of Legends and Psyonix's car soccer game Rocket League. Students will have to meet a few requirements before trying out for any of the four varsity teams. They must be enrolled full time for the 2019-20 semester, come to practice and events on the UNT Campus in Denton and meet an elite skill rank requirement. “We are serious about esports,” UNT vice president for student affairs Elizabeth With said in a news release. “We already have one of the best college teams in the nation, and we’d like to keep it that way." read more: https://www.dallasobserver.com/arts/university-of-north-texas-becomes-first-public-texas-school-to-give-esports-scholarships-11687998
