Chess Scholarships for Girls
Last month, Texas Tech University awarded the first ever chess scholarship. In fact, they awarded 3 scholarships to 3 girls from the Susan Polgar National Open Championship for Girls. They are working on giving more scholarships at the Susan Polgar World Open Championship for Girls in June in Las Vegas.
University of Texas in Brownsville is working on the same thing. Of course University of Texas in Dallas is already a supporter of Polgar events and chess for girls.
Do you know of any other University that may be interested in awarding Chess Scholarships for Girls? If you do, please let me know. My goal is to get more Colleges and Universities to recognize Chess and support our game.
