Our mission is to celebrate knowledge around the globe. As a result, the TICF is providing participation grants to one or more teams (including captain, deputy captain and 4 teammates) from developing countries or areas with less experience in international quizzing competition. For 2020, we will help trivia players earn the opportunity of a lifetime, a chance to travel to Krakow, Poland for the Quiz Olympiad.
If you are interested in applying for a grant to attend the 2020 Quiz Olympiad November 5-8 in Krakow, Poland please send a request letter to the TICF Olympiad Selection Committee, either via the linked form on this website or by postal mail to:
