The WWTA Scholarship program supports our mission of promoting the game and spirit of tennis in Western Wake County. Although this is not a skills based award, the program supports the continued growth of youth skills in those showing dedication and promise, while also recognizing community involvement and volunteerism.

Applicants must live within the WWTA service area zip codes: 27502, 27511, 27512, 27513, 27518, 27519, 27523, 27526, 27539, 27540, 27560, 27592.  Additional scholarship and grant opportunities for youth and college students are also available through the USTA Foundation and USTA Southern Patrons. Deadlines are typically earlier in the year than our WWTA Scholarships.

To be considered, players must be nominated by their coach or pro.  Coaches/pros can nominate deserving youth by submitting the online nomination form by March 20, 2020.  Each nominee will then be notified and asked to submit an application by April 17, 2020.  The Scholarship Committee will review the applications and select the recipients.   All nominees will receive notification of their status no later than May 3, 2020.  Please email Scholarships for any additional information.
