2nd US College Now Offering 'League of Legends' Scholarship

If you remember a while back, we ran a story about the first university in the world to recognize League of Legends video game as a true sport. Adding to the recognition, the University offered actual scholarships to professional level gamers. Now, Robert Morris University is joined by another US University, the University of Pikeville located in Kentucky, as the second US university to offer scholarships to qualified gamers.

I suppose if this does turn into a larger movement, it had to start somewhere, but I think it’s too early to fully pass judgment on this experiment.
