The International Chess Federation is pleased to announce the continuation of its support to chess veterans. A number of grants will be awarded next month to distinguished players, coaches and organizers aged 65+. Anyone over this age who has contributed to the development of chess and who is in an unstable financial situation is eligible to submit an application.
We invite federations, clubs, and players themselves to send their applications, including a CV of the nominee, to the FIDE Secretariat: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2022.
Just like in 2021, a total of €65,000 will be allocated to this program. This amount is to be distributed among distinguished chess seniors.
