Scholarship honoring Alabama tennis professionals
The Southern Tennis Foundation (STF), the charitable affiliate of USTA Southern, is proud to announce the establishment of an endowment fund to support a new Scholarship Honoring Alabama Tennis Professionals. The fund will provide college scholarships to deserving students in Alabama and across the South.
This scholarship fund will enable individuals and groups to honor Alabama professionals who have made a difference in their lives, the lives of their family members and their communities. It gives players and fans an opportunity to celebrate outstanding teaching pros for the years of hard work they have put into making Alabama tennis extraordinary. The state has many notable pros, active and retired, who are highly respected in the tennis world, much loved in their communities, and this is a fitting way to recognize their service.
The scholarship will provide $1,000 per year for up to four years to deserving high school graduates. Selections will be made by the STF’s College Scholarships Committee.
The STF is an independent all-volunteer 501(c)3 organization that provides needs-based scholarships, grants to assist competitive junior players, grants for youth-oriented programs, and emergency assistance to programs, pros and players. Donations are tax-exempt, and every dollar donated to the STF goes back to programs and players in the Southern states.
