The Intel FutureGen leadership programme was launched in 2019 and is a partnership between Intel and NSE to identify rising esports industry talent amongst students studying full-time at UK universities.
We have selected 20 successful applicants to join the Intel FutureGen 2023 cohort where they will be given invaluable experience with direct access to leading industry figures.
As well as each student getting their own industry buddy, the cohort will benefit from a series of guest talks from expert esports professionals, plus exclusive Q&As, workshops, access to industry events, and much more.
This year's lucky cohort will be matched up with experts in their field from companies such as PlayStation, OG Esports, Intel, Activision Blizzard, Excel Esports and much more.
