This event is open to any current, future, or recently graduated college(both undergraduate and graduate) student, who will or has attended school in the year 2016. All costs related to room, board, tours, and travel during the event will be covered by the Ing foundation. The student is responsible for getting to and from the tournament site(both international and domestic travel costs), and for any personal expenses such as souvenirs, and entertainment during the course of the trip.
This is a truly unique experience as the Shanghai Ing Foundation does not spare any expense during the planning of this event. If you would like to know more about this program, you can find the schedule and tournament regulations on the International University Weiqi Federation's website.
Please note that players of all skill levels are welcome to participate. There will be five divisions this year: a high dan, low dan, single digit kyu, double digit kyu and women's division. There is currently no deadline for applying, but please apply early as there are a limited number of spots available. The selection process will be on a first come first serve basis. You can send your registration forms directly to Mike Fodera.
