An objective of the USTA T&EF is to encourage children to pursue their goals and highest dreams by succeeding in school and becoming responsible citizens. Each year, the USTA T&EF awards scholarships to deserving youth who have participated in USTA and other organized youth tennis programs, and have demonstrated a financial need for college matriculation.
Established in 1994, the USTA Tennis & Education Foundation promotes - through tennis - educational excellence, good citizenship and self-improvement to at-risk and other special needs youth. The Foundation awards hundreds of scholarships to American youth, and supports new initiatives that reach out to inner-city youth. It also supports community tennis programs that link tennis with education to provide positive role models, academic assistance, and life skills for the prevention of substance abuse, violence and school-dropouts.
