Southern Tennis Patrons Foundation, the charitable arm of USTA Southern, has announced a new, easier process for applying for four $1,000 scholarships for incoming college freshmen.
The scholarship is $1,000, which is renewable for 4 years, if the student maintains a 3.0 or better GPA, remains a full-time student, and does not otherwise receive a full college scholarship.
The 2017 college scholarship application will be available online August 1, 2016. All Southern residents who meet the criteria are encouraged to apply.
Minimum Criteria for Selection

o Been ranked top 500 in Southern in past two years.

o Played in a Jr. Team Tennis or NJTL team or program for two years
- Does not otherwise have a full scholarship.
The application requires a high school transcript, college entrance exam scores, a short essay and simple financial need information. Completion of the application takes about 20 minutes.
