You will get a response as soon as possible on whether you are accepted or not, and further information. The players are selected according to strength, age, and motivation. If you do not qualify as a regular student, you may get an offer to join as a supporter, for the same benefits.

The participation fee for students is 25€ per Cycle starting from Season 11. (The players who took part in the CEGO training in Beijing are exempt for the term immediately following their return.)
We encourage the national Go association to carry the participation fees for their talented players. However, you need to sort it out by yourself with your national Go association.
Payment can be done via Paypal, bank transfer, or in cash when you meet Gabriel Wagner. It is also possible to use SEYGO vouchers to pay the participation fee.
