HTA Scholarship Programs

Providing scholarships annually to high school seniors in Greater Houston

image In 2015, the HTA recognized 19 outstanding high school graduates with college scholarships totalling $21,000. Since the HTA's scholarship program began in 1992, it has awarded more than $227,000.

Scholarships are available to high school seniors in the Greater Houston area who will be entering college in the upcoming year, and who have participated in high school varsity tennis and/or USTA Texas Section tournaments or programs.
