History and Mission


Scholarly Chess was founded by 5 high school students in August 2018. Motivated by their love of chess and urge to help their community, they have come together to create Scholarly Chess. And as they say, the rest is history!


The mission of Scholarly Chess is to spread the joy and experiences gained from the game of chess to young children and teenagers.


(1) To inspire and promote unity in the community through chess

(2) To encourage an environment where chess is available to anyone who is interested

(3) To inspire and promote the game of chess to less fortunate communities
