Chess Power wants every child in New Zealand to have access to Chess in a professional and educational environment. To help ensure this outcome, we do offer a special subsidy for small Schools and also low Decile Schools.
We have found small schools often find it difficult to generate the number of students to justify the cost of Chess Coaching.
A successful applicant school must have a school roll of less than 100 students.
Our experience has shown that Chess is of particular benefit to schools in lower socio-economic areas. Chess has wonderful positive effects on children dealing with a wide range of social and behavioural difficulty.
A successful applicant school must have a decile rating of 1 or 2.
Successful applicants will receive:
Note: Applicant Benefits extend for the year within which the school successfully applied for the subsidy. If the school wishes to receive the subsidy the following year, a new application needs to be made at the beginning of the year or ideally at the end of the previous year.
To apply for the Chess Subsidy, fill in the enquiry form below indicating the reasons you think your school should receive a subsidy.
We will be in touch within two weeks after considering your application.
