ChessKid grants can help you introduce the game of chess to every student in your school system through grants it is providing for the 2021-2022 school year. New for this year: the grant program is worldwide! Any public school system inside or outside the United States can apply.

At ChessKid they realize that school systems across the country have experienced one of the most challenging school years due to the global outbreak of Covid-19. For the second year, ChessKid wants to assist school systems during this challenging time by providing free Gold ChessKid accounts through a grant program for every elementary student in your school system/district.

The goal is to award at least five grants to a school system in the United States and five grants to a school system outside the United States for the 2021-2022 school year.
