“We need to reward the mavericks amongst us who may not fit into the mold of a traditional leader,” said Victor Xin (0T8 + PEY), reflecting the spirit of EngSci.

This sentiment inspired Xin to start a new scholarship for an engineering student with high academic marks and a passion for eSports.  eSports stands for electronic sports, a.k.a. the ever-expanding world of competitive video gaming, where top prizes can be in the millions of dollars.  Xin’s generous donation will support a student who has shown leadership in this community while maintaining high academic achievement.
