LPRT President T. J. Baumbaugh commented “We received many high quality applications from deserving players who are eager to play the Tour full time. We are grateful to the scholarship committee who had a very difficult job to do in selecting the winners and we are excited for the six players to compete this season.”
The LPRT Scholarship is granted annually through the LPRT. The objective of the scholarship award is to grant a scholarship to female players who aspire to be full-time players on the LPRT. The scholarship program is administered by the LPRT. Scholarships are awarded by an independent committee that is only affiliated with the LPRT for the purposes of reviewing scholarship applications and awarding scholarships. Applicants must be between the ages of 18-25. Applicants are judged on academic achievements, racquetball and non-racquetball related extracurricular activities and the applicant’s specific racquetball achievements.
Scholarship winners will receive free entry into five (5) LPRT Tier 1 or Grand Slam events, not including the US Open or USAR National Singles., a free 1 year membership into the LPRT, free lodging at the five (5) LPRT events, a travel stipend for each of those events and Fireballs from Ektelon, the Official Ball of the LPRT. Scholarship winners will be expected to participate in five (5) LPRT Tier 1 or Grand Slam events during the season that scholarship is earned, not including the US Open or USAR National Singles.
