Southwest Tennis Foundation Junior Scholarships

USTA Southwest Tennis Foundation would like to assure that all parents and players in the Southwest Section are aware of the availability of scholarship funds for clinics, camps and tournaments and the process for applying. No junior player should be discouraged from participating and progressing in his or her play by the expense involved in developing as a competitive player.

A scholarship application form needs to be completed, signed by the player and parent, submitted for approval to the player's Chartered CTA and mailed to the Southwest Tennis Foundation, 7010 E. Acoma Drive, Suite 201A, Scottsdale, AZ 85254.

The Southwest Scholarship Committee gives final approval and determines the scholarship to be awarded. Please keep in mind that this process may take several weeks.

Each scholarship recipient is responsible for performing community service hours within his or her Chartered CTA---2 hours for every $50.00 received.
