After reviewing the applications this commission, presided by FIDE Director General Emil Sutovsky, has decided to provide financial support for 2019 to the following eight distinguished veterans:

WGM Elena Fatalibekova (Russia)
GM Henrique Mecking (Brazil)
GM Oleg Romanishin (Ukraine)
GM Vladimir Okhotnik (France)
IM Jose Luis Vilela (Cuba)
IM Aly Ahmed Yasseen (Egypt)
IM Raimundo Garcia (Argentina)
IM Sergey Salov (Germany)

The support programme, for a total of 20,000 Euro, will be reviewed on an annual basis.
