FM_DONNELLY_AWARDS_WTT2013_018First established by Billie Jean King in 1998 and associated with the USTA Foundation for the first time in 2021, the Novo Nordisk Donnelly Scholarship is named after two collegiate tennis champions, Diane Donnelly Stone and Tracey Donnelly Maltby, sisters who have lived with diabetes since childhood.

Stone, an All-American and NCAA doubles champion at Northwestern University, partnered former USTA president Katrina Adams to win the 1987 national title, and Maltby was an All-Big Ten honoree at the University of Iowa.

King lauded the association as "a big step towards expanding the reach of this important program and will continue to facilitate our efforts to provide scholarships to students who play tennis and live with diabetes."

"In 1998, along with Diane Donnelly Stone and Tracey Donnelly Maltby, we created the idea for the Donnelly Awards. This scholarship program is named after Diane and Tracey as they, along with their father, Bud Donnelly, all played Division I collegiate tennis while living with the challenges of Type I Diabetes. Our goal was to establish a lasting scholarship fund that would benefit student-athletes who are living with diabetes and help them with some of the financial burdens they face in the pursuit of their academic and tennis dreams." - Billie Jean King

The scholarship funds are to be used for education, educational materials, and other related expenses at the college or university the student selects. Novo Nordisk, a global healthcare company that’s been making innovative medicines to help people with diabetes for nearly a century, has been the title sponsor of the award since 2002.
