College Feature
Scholarship Helps Students Pursuing Management Career in Tennis

The USTA - in collaboration with the USPTA and Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) - is offering a scholarship program for incoming and current college students seeking a Professional Tennis Management degree through a PTM program.

The recipients of the USTA’s PTM scholarship program are eligible to receive $2,000 per year to help cover the cost of tuition. The scholarship will be paid directly to the college or university in which the student is enrolled and disbursed annually based on the recipient’s standing in college.

Qualifying students must be 18 years of age and older (on or before the submission deadline), have a GPA of at least a 3.0 and have participated in a recognized tennis program such as a high school tennis team, National Junior Tennis & Learning chapter or local tennis program at a club or community tennis association. Students must also plan on having a career in the tennis industry.

The deadline to apply is April 24, 2021.

Students applying for the scholarship will be required to provide two letters of recommendation - one from a certified tennis professional from either USPTA or PTR, and the other from an established tennis coach. If applying to a PTM graduate program, a GRE score is required. It is the expectation that students applying for this scholarship will complete their degree program.

Schools offering undergraduate PTM programs include:

  • Berry College (Georgia)
  • University of Central Florida
  • Ferris State University (Michigan)
  • Hope College (Michigan)
  • Manhattanville College (New York)
  • Methodist College (North Carolina)

Schools offering graduate PTM programs:

  • Bridgewater State University
  • San Diego State University
  • University of Florida

Schools offering continuing education programs:

  • Queens College-CUNY
