Ashland to offer fortnite scholarship.

Folks, you can now earn a scholarship for being good at Fortnite, and you don't even have to leave the Great State of Ohio.

Ashland University, located in northeast Ohio between Columbus and Cleveland, has become the first college in the United States to offer a scholarship to players of Fortnite: Battle Royale.


The first Fortnite: Battle Royale college scholarship is here. It’s from Ashland University in Ohio, and will offer top Fortnite players $4,000 worth of tuition to join their newly formed esports program and compete on a squads team of four. This team will join their other esports offerings, Overwatch and League of Legends. Open tryouts for the squad will be announced sometime in the future.

 Now you can feel better about the countless hours you or your children have spent playing. There's hope!
