For the first time, we are excited to offer a scholarship opportunity for graduating seniors who meet the following criteria:

- Minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA
- Has volunteered time within high school career to “give back” to the game of tennis.
- Demonstrate financial need (Not receiving a full-ride)
- Must submit (2) letters of recommendation.
The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize graduating seniors who have played and promoted the game of tennis. The minimum scholarship amount awarded will be $1,000 and may be adjusted based on the number of qualified applicants.
Due to the importance of distributing funds in ample time, one application from each school will be accepted. We are asking athletic directors, tennis coaches, guidance counselors, or relevant staff members to share this opportunity with a student who best exemplifies the criteria listed above.
The application deadline is May 28, 2021. No applications will be accepted after this date. To access the application and submit letters of recommendation, click here.
