The Junior Player Scholarship Program is available to help defray costs associated with learning, training, and competing in tennis so that more young people can participate in tennis no matter their background, income, or zip code. This program aims to support young players as they learn tennis and progress in the sport.
This scholarship program is offered as a reimbursement and awards can help with costs associated with introductory lessons, camps, training, equipment, tournament fees and more. Players at any level of the sport - beginner, intermediate, and advanced - are eligible and Section Ranking is not a requirement. The process for a scholarship includes an application and essay. This scholarship is intended specifically for players that reside in the Mid-Atlantic Section (DC, MD, VA, or eastern and southern WV).
USTA Mid-Atlantic is proud to offer this scholarship program, which is supported by generous donations, to help more children can gain the healthy, lifelong benefits of the sport. This program earned USTA Mid-Atlantic recognition as a 2020 Aspen Institute Project Play Champion and upholds a vision for finding solutions so that all children can be physically active through sports. Continued support for the scholarship program and other USTA Mid-Atlantic charitable programs is needed.
Information about the 2021 Scholarship application will be released in the spring.
