The World Students Go Oza Championship
The World Students Go Oza Championship is the de facto world tournament for university students. Japanese publisher Nikkei Newspaper sponsors this tournament, which brings representatives from universities in Asia, Europe and the Americas together for top-level competition and cultural exchange.
The North American representative to the World Students Go Oza Championship is selected through an online tournament held each year. To be eligible, players must:
- Be an amateur player.
- Be a university / college student under the age of 30.
- Be able to use Pandanet to participate in the preliminaries.
- Be able to communicate in English by email.
- Be able to come to Japan to participate in the main championship.
American go players are governed by the AGA policy on the selection of international representatives, which requires US citizenship or permanent residency. Other go players must be simple residents of a North American country and members of their national go association. Foreign go players may also be subject to agreements between their national go association and the AGA (see posted AGA policy documents).
