The Southern Tennis Patrons Foundation is offering several funding opportunities in 2017...
• College Scholarships: We offer 4 scholarships per year to incoming college freshmen @ $1,000/year for 4 years (as long as the student maintains a 3.0 GPA). The primary criteria is academic results. The student must be a tennis player, but being a top ranked player is not a requirement. The application can be completed in 30 minutes. Application deadline March 1.
• Community Tennis Grants: Grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 for year one, then 50% of that in year 2. These grants are to promote growth and assist community tennis associations and other organizations in initiating and/or expanding USTA tennis programming at the grass roots level and educating the public on sportsmanship, character and the health benefits tennis provides. Application deadline March 3.
• Financial Assistance to Junior Players: We’ve up the amounts available this year for these travel grants ($2,000 to players participating at the section level and $5,000 to players participating at the national level). The family must have an income lower than $99,000/year. These grants are available throughout the year.
• Line Grants to assist with painting 36’ and 60’ lines on courts, available throughout the year.
