Personal Essay - Please submit a personal essay about why you want to serve as a Tennis For America Fellow (750-word limit)
You will need to have two recommendations submitted to Tennis For America. Each individual should be able to speak to your professional and personal capabilities.
When choosing recommenders, select two individuals who can speak to different aspects of your experience (e.g. work, volunteering, student, athlete, etc.).
While your colleagues and classmates may be among those who know you best, they are not suitable in this case. It is preferred that the recommenders have known you for at least two years.
Candidates must be completing or have completed the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor's degree from an accredited institution.
You may upload an "unofficial" or student copy of your transcript to your application; however, we will request an official copy for verification purposes should you be admitted to Tennis For America.
When the Tennis For America Selection Committee looks at your transcripts, we are looking at the whole picture - not just your GPA. We take into account where you went to school, the courses that you took and your performance.
There is no minimum GPA to apply. Academics are just one factor the Tennis For America selection committee use to evaluate a candidate.
