Fellow must be a former varsity collegiate tennis player or have demonstrable knowledge and experience in the sport of tennis. Fellowships are based at USTA Player Development Headquarters in Boca Raton, Fla. Housing expenses are not provided.

A stipend of $4,000 plus travel expenses is provided to observe and participate in the operations of USTA Professional Development at all P.D. training centers. The fellowship will last approximately 11 weeks from mid-June to early September.
