Scholarship opportunity

See below for an opportunity for 21 to 30 year olds to travel to the States with tennis.


Brief details of the Scholarship

The name of the scholarship is Nottingham Roosevelt Memorial Travelling Scholarship. I was a past scholar (in 1983) and have recently taken over as the Secretary for NRMTS. We are a Nottinghamshire based Charity and were established in 1946 by the then Lord Mayor of Nottingham, Francis Carney, and US President Dwight Eisenhower in honour of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the contribution he made to ending WWII. The object of the Scholarship is to promote further education and in particular of the history and way of life of the American people – so building stronger links between Nottinghamshire and the US.

We provide scholarships to anyone aged 21-30 living or working in Nottinghamshire to travel to the States for up to three months. The ‘bursary’ is up to £3,000 plus a return flight to New York. It’s a wonderful opportunity for self-development and to pursue a key project – of the applicant’s choice which could include aspects of how tennis is developed in the States. We hope the individuals will provide long lasting benefit to the County on their return. Brief details are on the attached leaflet and full details are on our website

Closing date for 2017 applications is Friday 3rd March.
