The Chess Trust is pleased to provide a series of small grants to help Ukrainian nationals to continue to play competitive chess whilst in the UK. A total of £10,000 has been made available.
Grant applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and must state clearly the name, age and address of the applicant and for what purpose the grant will be used. Applications will be treated in the strictest confidence.

While this is not a comprehensive list, grant applications may cover support in areas such as tournament and representative play (including entry, travel, accommodation); ECF membership; local club membership (although it is hoped that local clubs would waive membership fees in cases of genuine hardship).
