Video gaming as a college (and pro) sport is a thing. So you should not be surprised and you may be exited to find out that some kids at MSU are paying for school with their video gaming scholarships. According to the Lansing State Journal, the scholarships are paid for by Riot Games, a video game developer. A handful of colleges do offer traditional scholarships, in the same way they offer football scholarships, to gamers and I would think Michigan State is on the road to doing the same.

Hey, you're going to play video games at college anyway. If you're good, why not get "paid" to play for the school?

Here's the story.
