As an industry first, the For The Gamers Fund Esports Awards, is an initiative that aims to give back to the esports community and find the next generation of industry leaders. In partnership with eFuse, the Esports Awards will award $10,000 dollars to the applicant who is shown to be at the brink of greatness and with the given resources, will truly excel inside the industry. Whether it’s funding a business idea or building an esports facility, the fund is all about creating an opportunity to nurture the grassroots of esports.
Applications are now open through the Esports Awards website and the three finalists will be selected in October, where they will then undertake a series of interviews with current esports industry leaders and influencers. The criteria for award stands among the following three pillars; impact within the esports community, the potential for greatness, and how the $10,000 will help the individual make its mark on the Esports industry.
If you are an aspiring esports pro, entrepreneur, grassroots role model, 40 hour-a-week streamer, or a university applicant this is your chance to change your life.
