GOAL High School is constantly seeking creative ways to engage its at-risk students. That’s why it turned to Lenovo to help found its first-ever esports league. Lenovo donated time and expertise to build an esports program from the ground up — and founded a $20,000 scholarship in the process. The program motivates students to complete their academic work and gives them a sense of purpose.

GOAL isn’t the only academic institution supported by Lenovo. At the University of North Carolina, the company recently constructed a massive gaming arena equipped with nearly 40 top-of-the-line Legion computers, designed especially for gaming, along with keyboards and headsets. Lenovo also provides expertise and ongoing tech support. The program has grown from 300 to 800 students in just three years.

“As a longtime champion of data, creativity, and connectivity, Lenovo offers a multitude of resources for academic institutions, such as financial support, student scholarships, infrastructure, licensing assistance, and of course, expertise.”
