Benjamin “Dr Lupo” Lupo, a famous Fortnite twitch streamer, is partnering with Rogue and Find Your Grind to launch a program which will help junior gaming enthusiasts become professional e-sports players, and possibly kickstart their careers.
Rogue, an e-sports organisation, and education platform Find Your Grind is partnering with Lupo – who frequents with Ninja, TimTheTatman and more famous Fortnite Battle Royale personalities – to make “Junior Rogue”.
“Junior Rogue” is a mentorship program that pits students with Rogue’s e-sports professionals and Find Your Grind’s educational staff members. The project is designed to allow students to better their competitive play, as well as teaching them the importance of social media, audience interaction and even game development.
Students will also receive high-end streaming and gaming equipment, a $500 scholarship and a travel stipend.
Apparently, the program filters students’ applications on a “case-by-case basis” and are “willing to foot the bill for passionate players who might not have the funds to take part in the program.”
You’ll be asked to upload your best continuous 40-60 minutes of Fortnite gameplay footage as a part of this application.
You can apply for the FYG Junior Rogue program here – the requirements are that you must be under 18 years of age and a resident of a U.S. Territory, or the United States. Applications are open until October 1, 2018at 5pm Pacific Time.
