Chess Scholarships

Chess Scholarships can save your kid lots of money!

In addition to all the known benefits of chess, there are many college chess scholarships available out there that people don’t know about. Kenyon College offers $10,000 toward their tuition to the top 50 scholastic chess players in the country. The top 50 players are all above master level, so it is not an easy club to get into, but there are lots of other chess scholarships available as well. Chess in schools, and chess study is becoming a rather financially beneficial activity for kids and their families!
