Scholarship Description

This scholarship is named in honor of the late Rosalind Palmer Walter, who was responsible for funding the first USTA Foundation scholarship in 1994, well before a comprehensive program was put in place. Mrs. Walter’s commitment to tennis and education didn’t stop with her service to the USTA Foundation Board. She served on the Board of the International Tennis Hall of Fame and Long Island University, and was a Trustee of WNET Channel Thirteen and The Paley Center for Media.

The Rosalind P. Walter Scholarship is available to two high-academic achieving students of good character, who have demonstrated achievements in leadership, participated extensively in an organized community tennis program, and are entering a four-year college or university program.

A $10,000 scholarship will be awarded over a term of four years to one male and one female student who are entering a four-year college or university program.

The recipients of the Rosalind P. Walter College Scholarship are eligible to receive $2,500 per year for a total of up to $10,000 to cover costs of tuition, room and board and educational materials. The scholarship will be paid directly to the college or university in which the student is enrolled and is disbursed annually based on the recipient’s standing with his/her college.
