All-Girls US Chess School: Call for Applicants
By IM Greg Shahade   
December 8, 2011
Due to unexpected cancellations, one or two spots are still open for the 17th United States Chess School in Tucson, Arizona from December 26-30th. Any female player under age 18 but above 1800 should consider eligible for applying. Anyone U21 and above 2000 would also be an eligible candidate. If you are interested please send an email ASAP to [email protected] and we will quickly choose the most appropriate candidates to attend.

This particular edition of the US Chess School is our second ever all-girls program and the instructors will be GM Alejandro Ramirez and IM Greg Shahade. The training is completely free of charge, although the students are responsible for travel, lodging and meals. The camp consists of five days of chess training (and fun!) from approximately 9 AM to 6 PM each day. 

This edition of the US Chess School is organized in conjunction with 9 Queens.
