    The e-Grants registration requires up to three weeks for application processing. We encourage clients and potential
    clients to complete the registration cycle well before any intention of applying for any particular e-Grant. This is a tedious
    process and usually requires the assistance of your district's central business office to ensure ample time for quality grant
    design, revision and submission uploading. We recommend adding PHD Vision as a "Grantee Writer/Editor" during the
    registration process to ensure swift and smooth grant processing. Clients are welcome to our assistance.

Think Like A King® is a comprehensive software system that lets schools or families use chess to help kids build the critical
thinking skills they'll need for learning… and for life.

At school, it's an entire system that addresses all the needs of a chess club, from Management to Motivation to Teaching. So
any school can have an expert chess program even without a chess expert.

At home, our engaging interactive chess tutorials make learning chess easier and more fun than ever. You'll find everything
you need to help your kids become better chess players and better thinkers. It's like having a personal chess tutor on call

Think Like A King is more than just great software. It's a nationwide project to promote chess as an educational activity that
