The AGF is committed to helping kids attend the AGA Go Camp. There are several ways to qualify:
Scholarships are available for the American Go Association Summer Go Camp. Campers who played in either the Redmond Cup or the North American Kyu Championships should e-mail their request for a scholarship to firstname.lastname@example.org. Campers who did not play in these events should submit their applications for aid directly to the camp coordinators. Those requesting assistance should complete the scholarship application process described below. Each scholarship will be in the range of $50 to $250 depending on the requested amount and the number of the requests. Campers are encouraged to raise additional funds from their local go clubs.
The scholarship application consists of:
After the completion of the camp, scholarship recipients will be expected to write an post-camp essay (1+ page, double spaced, 1-inch margins, 12-point font) about their positive camp experiences, learning experiences, and a review of their instructor(s). Essays become the property of the AGA/AGF and may be used for promotional purposes.
We hope that we will be able to meet all the scholarship needs so every child who is truly interested can attend go camp. It's important to apply early because scholarship money is limited! Scholarships are funded solely through donations to the American Go Foundation. The AGA and AGF are committed to making go camp available to all children who wish to come.
Note: To donate specifically to the Summer Camp Fund, mention Go Camp on the donation page.
