Oregon Chess Project Summer Fellowships for High School and College Students

Rose City Chess has endowed a series of Summer Fellowships to reward high-school and college students who make a positive contribution to Oregon chess through their effort as chess coaches and tournament directors.

Award Amount: $1000 per one-week fellowship

Eligibility: High-school and college students with an established rating of USCF 1200+ (or equivalent). Summer Fellows who can commit to working more than one week are eligible to receive multiple fellowships.

Awards Made: 1 to 5 annually

Description: Summer Fellows are expected to work for a full week at a Rose City Chess Summer Camp. Summer Fellows are mentored by an experienced coach and organizer. In 2022, the mentors include USCF Tournament Director Chad Lykins, USCF Life Master Matt Zavortink, and USCF National Master Wilson Gibbins.

Major emphasis will be spent on developing skills needed to be an effective teacher and organizer, including communication, classroom management, and the technical aspects of directing a USCF tournament. By the end of the fellowship, Summer Fellows will be USCF Club Tournament Directors with at least one event to their credit.
