Juniors invited to apply for USTA/PNW Travel Assistance Grants
Junior tennis players participating in USTA Pacific Northwest (USTA/PNW) sanctioned championship-level tournaments or a USTA National Championship tournament may apply for a need-based Travel Assistance Grant. The purpose of the USTA/PNW Travel Assistance Grant program is to provide financial support to players who would not otherwise have the means to travel and participate in sanctioned section tournaments and/or national tournaments.
Please note that the applications for section tournament travel grants and national tournament travel grants are separate. You may be considered for both grants but you must complete both applications in their entirety to do so.
Please click here
to view and print the USTA/PNW Section Travel Assistance Grant application. Please click here
to view and print the USTA/PNW National Travel Assistance Grant application (please use the 2012 forms).
Travel Assistance Grants are to be used for travel and tournament expenses incurred by the player only, and may not be used for family members, coaches or any other expense. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jim Markin, USTA/PNW Director of Junior Player Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org
