Realizing a dream for college competition

Tespa is the leader in competitive college esports; we host landmark tournaments where college players can win money for school in front of enthusiastic fans. Our mission is to create events that recognize and reward the top competitors and teams in college esports – which we’ve done by awarding more than $1 million in prizes to date. The best players and teams in our esports programs have appeared on ESPN, Twitch, and other major network broadcasts. 

For those of you who compete in our events, we want to offer a chance to further your future through gaming.  One hundred percent of our prizing comes in the form of scholarships; it’s our way of integrating gaming excellence with the opportunity to grow as a student.
