USTA Northern California Diversity and Inclusion Committee offers four annual scholarships to support the Level One strategic priority of Diversity with a Multicultural focus. Our four annual scholarships to support and encourage multicultural participation among high school students entering college:
- Diversity Committee Arthur Ashe College Scholarship: On the 19th day of January 1994, the section enacted in perpetuity the USTA Northern California Diversity Committee Service in memory of the valuable contributions Arthur Ashe made to tennis and the world at large.
- Diversity Committee Michael Chang College Scholarship: On the 10th day of July 2003, USTA Northern California enacted the Diversity Committee Michael Chang Scholarship in honor of the valuable contributions Michael Chang has made to tennis for his play and his sportsmanship.
- Diversity Committee Pancho Gonzalez College Scholarship: In August 2005, USTA Northern California inaugurated the Diversity Committee Pancho Gonzalez Scholarship in honor of the valuable contributions Pancho Gonzalez made to tennis for his play and his sportsmanship. As the only Latino player of his time, Pancho Gonzalez experienced great adversity and obstacles in his life. It could be argued that this helped his tennis career.
- Diversity Committee Althea Gibson College Scholarship: In December 2007, USTA Northern California enacted the Diversity Committee Althea Gibson Scholarship in honor of the valuable contributions Althea Gibson made as well as in honor of her memory, life, and achievements of this exceptional pioneer who paved the way for millions who followed.
