UFM Youth Scholarship Fund

UFM Youth Scholarships are made possible by a contribution from Little Apple Pilot Club in Manhattan. Scholarships are available for qualified youth to participate in any eligible UFM activity.

Roger Trenary Tennis and Education Fund Scholarship

The Roger Trenary Tennis and Education Fund at the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation provides scholarships to qualified youth interested in learning about tennis. Several Manhattan tennis enthusiasts endowed the fund to encourage and support young people learning about and becoming involved in a sport that can provide them lifelong benefits and pleasure. Earnings from the fund have supported after-school, summer, and other programs to give basic tennis instruction to school children. UFM provides the screening for these scholarships as well.
