The Fed Cup Foundation Scholarship Fund
The Fed Cup Foundation Scholarship Fund, launched by Margie Abbott in 2016, has been established primarily to provide funding to support and encourage young females to reach their potential to become world class international tennis players.
Set up in honour of the late Jenny Henderson, a long serving member of the Fed Cup Foundation Board, scholarships will be awarded in her memory. We hope that many of these female tennis players will be identified through our very successful Australian Made Foundation Cup.
The Fed Cup Foundation is delighted to announce 14 year old Gold Coast tennis player Olivia Gadecki as the inaugural winner of their Scholarship Program. Click here to read more.
Applications for the 2018 Fed Cup Foundation Scholarship Program will open on Monday October 2nd 2017 and close on Friday November 24th 2017.
