The USTA Foundation believes in giving back, in supporting programs that utilize tennis and education to build brighter futures and more vibrant communities, and to support students who have excelled as they pursue a college education.
To date, we have awarded more than $25 million in grants and scholarships to hundreds of programs, benefitting thousands of children throughout the country.



The USTA Foundation awards grants to programs that support under-resourced youth through tennis and education programs designed to improve health, build character and strive for academic excellence.  Priority is given to registered National Junior Tennis & Learning (NJTL) chapters that offer formal educational curricula, such as the ACE Curriculum, improved tennis delivery, and implementation of USTA products. Please review the current grant guidelines before submission. 

The USTA Foundation has launched a new grants management software. The new system allows for a more user-friendly experience. In order to access the Program Grant application, you must first regster with the new software.
