The United States Tennis Association Player Development department usually selects a boy’s team and a girl’s team of players to represent the U.S. at the Junior Grand Slam events (outside of the United States). If the USTA does not to take a player accepted into the singles main draw on a trip or does not send a team to a specific grand slam event (outside of the U.S.), then the USTA will provide those players a grant. Players who are accepted and compete in the main draw of the Australian Jr. Open, French Jr. Open and Wimbledon Jr. Championships will receive a travel grant. A player competing in the singles main draw of the Australian Jr. Open will receive $1,500. A player competing in the singles main draw of the French Jr. Open and Wimbledon Jr. Championships will receive $1,000.
Grants will also be awarded to players who qualify for the main draw in singles of any of the above listed events. However, no grant is given for the U.S. Open Junior Championships. Players who are accpeted or qualify do not need to apply for this grant. A grant letter will be sent to the players and a check will be sent out after the player has participated in the event and the tournament is completed. Players who are disqualified for any reason or who act inappropriately at the event will not be awarded a grant.
