About the 2009 Scholar-Chessplayer Award

These annual scholarships awarded by the USCF and the US Chess Trust, are intended to recognize and encourage high school junior or senior students who promote a positive image of chess.

Current USCF members (high school juniors or seniors) who have shown outstanding merit in academics, sportsmanship, and chess are eligible to apply for a National Scholar-Chessplayer Award.

Five awards of $1000.00 each (for a total of $5,000.00) in scholarship money are available.

The applications are available online.  Application Deadline is March 1, 2009.

Good luck to all the chessplayers!
