Grants & Scholarships
The NC Tennis Foundation offers many grant and scholarship opportunities for under-resourced programs and participants throughout North Carolina.
Emily H. Preyer Family Endowment
The NC Tennis Foundation completed a capital campaign raising over $1.7 million in 2006. A portion of that money went to help create a new NC Tennis Hall of Fame which opened at the Harold T. and Mildred F. Southern North Carolina Tennis Center in 2008.
A main focus of the campaign was to create the NC Tennis Foundation Emily H. Preyer Family Endowment Fund. The NC Tennis Foundation offers grants annually from the endowment or gift fund.
The Saunders-Langford Endowment provides juniors the opportunity to experience tournament tennis and reap the benefits of competing and developing lifelong relationships. This endowment provides need based grants to players from small North Carolina communities to help them participate in tournaments.
