AcadArena makes over PHP2M worth of scholarships more diverse and accessible


After the successful launch of the first batch of Globe-AcadArena Merit Esports Scholars last 2020 in the Philippines, we are making more diverse and inclusive student assistance programs with new ways to get financial support.

The national fund has a total value of over PHP2,000,000 and will now be open to both senior highschool and college students. The different categories are:

Bi-Annual Scholarships:

  • Globe-AcadArena Merit Esports Scholarship (GAMES) -- Leadership
  • Globe-AcadArena Merit Esports Scholarship (GAMES) -- Competitive 


Monthly Scholarships:

  • Globe-AcadArena Good Game Grant (G3) -- Study
  • Globe-AcadArena Good Game Grant (G3) -- Family
  • AcadArena Women in Esports (AWE) Powered by Globe 
  • Creator Grant Powered by Twitch Student
  • Gear Aid Powered by Logitech G


Empowering Model Students

We announced the first batch of Globe-AcadArena Merit Esports (GAME) Scholars in the 2020 AcadArena Awards. There, we awarded scholarships to exemplary students under “Leadership” and “Competitive” categories.

AcadArena also handed out aid to exemplary students in need via the Globe Good Game Grant (G3), to add a good amount of money to their household needs.


“Inclusivity and accessibility is as important as ever as we’ve learned from the struggles of an average student. Awarding support to more student profiles, not just the competitive gamer, is how we embody our #NotJustPlay tagline,” shares AcadArena CEO Ariane Lim. “We’re lucky we’re able to work with brands that see importance in investing in our youth in these difficult times.”



Leveling-up Student Assistance

A notable shift in this year’s cycle is to award grants every month. To empower our students further, other AcadArena partners — Logitech G and Twitch Student have joined with additional grants for choice categories.


Logitech G - Complete peripherals set for the one (1) awardee under the Gear Aid category;

Twitch Student - An additional grant of PHP15,000 for two (2) Creator Grant recipients;


Additionally, new categories with Globe Telecom have been added covering supporting a thesis or study related to gaming through the Globe Good Game Grant (G3) - Study; and females who serve as exemplary role models both in school and in gaming through the AcadArena Women in Esports (AWE) scholarship.


AcadArena welcomes brands and businesses who see the value in supporting student gamers to reach out for scholarships of their own.
