NIU Esports and Dr. Levi Harrison are proud to announce a multi-year collaborative partnership to promote and support healthy gaming. Known as “the esports doctor,” Dr. Harrison is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in the treatment of hand, arm and shoulder injuries. He’s also an avid video game player, mental health advocate and the creator of both the Try-Angle hand fitness device and Fierce Gamer – an app that provides exercises, meditations, healthy eating advice and other information to promote gamers’ physical and mental well-being.
Dr. Levi is also providing support to NIU students through a generous scholarship fund, providing one $1,000 esports scholarship in the first year, while adding an additional scholarship each year for the next five years. To qualify, you don't need to participate in the Fierce Gamer Scholarship, but you do need to be a self-proclaimed gamer and an NIU student to apply. All sophomore, junior, and senior NIU students are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
