Thanks to a generous donor, the American Go Foundation is able to grant a select number of young players the opportunity to have a series of professional lessons online. Yi Lun Yang 7P, Janice Kim 3P, and Jennie Shen 2P, have generously agreed to support the program. Applicants must be AGA members, currently in grades K-12, and have never had a professional lesson before. Applicants will be judged on their demonstrated interest in go, their short essays and any letters of recommendation. Finalists may be asked to play a game against a strong amateur to confirm their enthusiasm. Six lessons will be provided to each player selected. The deadline for applications is January 1 2013.
