Cafetalk Scholarship Program Round 2
Now recruiting aspiring Go tournament winners!
We began the Cafetalk Scholarship Program on February 24th, 2016 in order to support people who are challenging themselves to try new things via online lessons.
Go has become a hot topic thanks to the recent news of Google's artificial intelligence software, "Alpha Go," defeating 9-dan Go genius Lee Sedol.
The second installment of the Cafetalk Scholarship Program is open to highly ambitious Go players of all ages who hope to win tournaments. We will support your endeavors by covering the cost of your online lessons.
