Chess Corps Scholarship Program

A limited number of scholarships are available each trimester for Chess Corps’ tuition-based program, Chess Studio on the Hill. (To learn more about Chess Studio on the Hill, please click here). Students must apply annually for financial assistance. Scholarships are offered on the basis of need and merit. Previous scholarship recipients have been students with developmental disabilities and U-16 students with ratings of over 1800 USCF.

To be considered for a Chess Corps Scholarship, you must complete the Scholarship Application Form below and submit the completed form to Chess Corps. Scholarship applications are evaluated on the basis of financial need, family size, serious disability, exceptional chess achievement/rating, and other relevant information for the student and parent. The Chess Corps Scholarship Committee will review your application and will notify you of their decision in writing within four to six weeks of receiving your application. Because it can take several weeks for us to process scholarship applications, it is important to submit applications well in advance of the start of the trimester in which you intend to enroll.
