Only 2% of applications were accepted in the fall 2018 and spring 2019 semesters, but the upcoming semester will add 12 more spots, bringing the class size to 30. Rogue is hoping more people means opening up more doors to solos, duos, and content creators.
For context, 16 of the past Junior Rogue members have gone on to the pro level of esports, playing such teams as FaZe and Gen.G, or even started their own esports organization. New for this upcoming semester, gamers will have the opportunity to be recruited to Rogue’s professional team after 12 weeks of the program.
Other perks of the program include mentorship and one-on-one coaching by Fortnite pros. DrLupo is one of the biggest-named mentors, with 6.1 million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and YouTube. The goal of the program is to help gamers improve their content strategies and gameplay. On top of everything else, they will get access to industry professionals and a $500 scholarship.
Fortnite enthusiasts ages 13-17 (as of Nov. 21) can apply online at juniorrogue.gg before the deadline of Dec. 8. Gamers must have a waiver signed by their parents and be a U.S. resident. Check out the announcement video from DrLupo below.
