IM Josh Friedel Named Samford Scholar


Chess Life Magazine reports that IM Josh Friedel has been awarded the 21st annual Samford Scholarship.

The Samford Scholarship was created "to identify and assist the best young American chessmasters by providing top level coaching, strong competition and access to study materials. The Fellowship also provides a monthly stipend for living expenses so that the winners may devote themselves entirely to chess without having financial worries. The total value of the Fellowship is approximately $32,000 annually for two years."

You can also hear a bit from Josh in my March 2006 Scholastic Chess ChessCafe column. That column included a discussion of the U.S. Chess School, following the school's first session which included Friedel.
