Cloud9 Training Grounds is excited to offer a scholarship for Pride Month! Alongside Aim Lab, Cloud9 Training Grounds seeks to further diversity in esports!
Training Grounds is excited to partner with Aim Lab to announce our first LGBTQIA+ scholarship program in celebration of Pride Month! We recognize the lack of representation of the LGBTQIA+ community in the gaming space and are dedicated to making Training Grounds a place for everyone. The online gaming space can be a toxic place, and the LGBTQIA+ community are often targeted more than other groups. We believe that to bridge this gap, we must facilitate more pathways and opportunities to make our community rich with diversity. Three scholarship award winners will be selected and receive free enrollment to a camp of their choice plus a full set of HyperX peripherals.
Founded in 2013, Cloud9 has grown to become one of the most recognizable esports organizations in the world. With championships industry-wide, unmatched viewership hours, and extensive benefits packages for players and staff, Cloud9 prides itself on being the best in all categories. This includes Cloud9 Training Grounds, the premier esports youth development program in North America.
At this time, Cloud9 fields professional teams in Chess, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Fortnite, Halo, Hearthstone, League of Legends, Overwatch, PUBG: Mobile, Rainbow Six Siege, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Teamfight Tactics, VALORANT, and World of Warcraft.
