Need-based scholarships are available.   To qualify, the player must be a long time dedicated chess player in good standing.  The player is encouraged to assist in general club activities. Families must show a financial need and will be approved on an individual basis.   Discounts are adjusted to accommodate individual situations. 

Donations

Please consider donating to our club.  We help all families with chess tournament expenses.  These discounts can only occur though generous donations of our parents.  Last year $780 in donations helped six students.
