Professional Esports organization Gen.G is offering a fully remote internship program for North American college students who wish to work in the gaming and esports industry.

The Next Gen Fellowship program lasts for four weeks, and features meetings, lessons, and networking opportunities to forge a career path in esports. The “Fellows” will shadow a different department each week, and receive at least five hours of programmed sessions per week.

At the end of the program, students will receive a $500 honorarium, and access to the Fellowship Alumni Network.

“Gen.G continues to offer students and administrations opportunities to develop their esports and gaming paths. The Next Gen Fellowship is a chance for students interested in our industry to get their feet wet,” says Arnold Hur, CEO, Gen.G. “We are proud to add this fellowship to our incredible educational offerings, from our ongoing support of the Gen.G Collegiate Network of esports clubs to our recent successful Campus Takeover event at the University of Kentucky.”

Students can apply for the Next Gen Fellowship now through June 10. Although it’s fully remote, applicants are limited to North American students.

Selected students will be announced on June 20, and must go through an interview. The remote program will run from July 8 through August 2. The Next Gen Fellowship will end with a final digital exhibition on August 5.

Gen.G is one the world’s most valuable esports organizations, with professional teams in League of Legends, PUBG, Rocket League, and Valorant. The Gen.G League of Legends team won their fourth consecutive League Champions Korea title in 2024.
