Application for CCF Pawns to Queens Program
JAN. 25, 2017: SORRY, APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED. WE WILL RE-OFFER THE PROGRAM NEXT ACADEMIC YEAR.

The best way to build competitive strength is to provide instruction at more than one level of difficulty (tiered coaching). CCF’s Pawns to Queens program offers grants of up to $1000 for additional coaches at resource-strained schools that show strong potential to advance quickly and increase their participation in competition. This program is not available to schools participating in CCF's Rook, Rattle and Roll program.
