The USTA Texas Tennis Foundation believes that tennis can play a vital role in teaching our children fundamental values like a strong work ethic, teamwork, and good sportsmanship. We proudly support Texas tennis players through our Grants program.
The Competitive Junior Player Travel Assistance Fund provides grants to help defray the cost of travel for junior competitive players of need to USTA National and/or ITF scheduled events occurring in the United States.
Any player, whether Quota (already receiving monetary help from USTA Texas) or not, may submit an application for this travel expense reimbursement grant associated with national events.
The maximum amount to be awarded annually for each player will be $1,000. Should a player have qualifying expenses of only $500 for the first half of the year, he or she will still be able to apply for additional funds not to exceed the maximum award amount specified above.
The criteria to be used for consideration of those junior players who apply are as follows:
Need Basis (is there a true financial need associated with traveling to these events)
Playing Performance (ranking and/or record)
Player must also be in current good standing with USTA Texas
The application is open all year, and players need only apply once. If selected, funds toward additional tournaments throughout the year (up to the maximum annual award) can be requested via email to the scholarship coordinator. Performance and current good standing will be verified on an ongoing basis.
