    Bursaries are still available to players who finished first and second or third after playoffs in CYCC 2013 and who have not had an opportunity to be the official player at WYCC, NAYCC or Pan Am YCC. At some point a deadline for application will be set so that we can finalize the budget for this event. Bursaries will be paid after NAYCC is completed to qualified players who complete the NAYCC tournament. The timing of the NAYCC tournament is a bit unfortunate as it conflicts with exam schedules. Many players have had to make special arrangements with their schools in order to be able to attend and still complete their exams. Several such requests are still pending. At the moment there are 34 Canadian players registered with a possible two more. I expect that this number will grow as people are able to resolve arrangements with their schools.
