Kids for Chess Announces 2024 World Youth Chess Championships Scholarships

Note: These scholarships are funded and administered outside of US Chess by the private organization Kids for Chess. 

Kids for Chess, a nonprofit organization with the mission of empowering America’s best youth chess players, will be offering 3 scholarships for $1,500 each to help qualified players offset the cost of attending the World Youth Chess Championships in 2024.

The Selection Committee will determine the winners of the scholarships based on a combination of the applicant’s chess achievements, academic success, participation in chess-related community service, and genuine need for financial assistance. The application involves providing two essays (one required and one optional), two recommendation letters, and an official transcript from your school. The application deadline is May 15, 2024, and all applicants will receive a response by June 1, 2024.
