Our Intercollegiate Competition Program is focused on developing teams and individuals for direct competition in various events, leagues, and tournaments. While the lack of governance from known entities is currently limited, every school at this moment is developing their own standards for eligibility referencing their own best practices, governance they are familiar to, and the rulesets of the competitions they are entering into. We are trying our best to standardize all requirements across the board with room for exceptions when they logically come up.
In late Fall 2018, the Esports Association at the University of Oklahoma officially obtained Competitive Club status and is officially licensed to use the venerable OU Interlocking Logo for its apparel and branding. The final evolution of this organizational upgrade was renaming it to the OU Esports Club. As of the Spring 2019 semester, we do not currently offer scholarship opportunities through the university. That is purely due to the fact we are just now starting fundraising and building much more tangible relationships within the university administration and leadership. We are also researching scholarships for other parts of our development to achieve our goal of supporting the entire infrastructure of esports and not just competitors.
