Advanta World TeamTennis Business Scholarship

Advanta WTT Business Scholarship For College Students
World TeamTennis will grant $5,000 to two young entrepreneurs (one $2,500 grant for a man and another $2,500 grant for a woman) who submit a business proposal that can be effectively used to help expand WTT profitability.  Specifically, the proposal should focus on non-traditional marketing techniques that could be used to increase awareness of WTT and WTT events, thereby expanding the fan-base and ultimately increasing revenue.

Who Should Apply?
All students currently enrolled in college are eligible to submit a proposal, but the challenge is specifically targeted at business majors and/or young entrepreneurs.  One male and one female will each be awarded a $2,500 grant.

Advanta World TeamTennis ScholarshipWhat Should Be Included In The Application?
Advanta WTT is looking for one of the two following formats as way of a proposal:

1) A traditional business proposal of approximately 3,000 words which would take the following format:
     A. Cover Letter
     B. Summary Of Proposal
     C. Narrative To Include:
          - Project description
          - Brief state of area being addressed
          - Goals and objectives
          - Target population
          - HOW this project will be implemented
          - Plan for measuring project results
          - Estimated costs
          - Conclusion, to include: benefits for WTT and why your idea, specifically, will be successful

2) A non-traditional proposal of your choice.  This can include an explanatory DVD, a link to a sample website, or anything else you think would be appropriate.

Submitting Your Application
The proposal is due by noon on July 1, 2009.  You can submit your proposal via e-mail to nchu@wtt.com.  If you have any questions, please contact Bill Mountford at WTT.

You may submit an application on behalf of a group, or even as a pair (perhaps a study partner from a business course, for example).  If a group wins this award, the scholarship will be divided evenly among the students and/or organization that they represent (i.e. a Tennis On Campus program).  There should be a "captain" for each group submission, however.

The applications will be reviewed by World TeamTennis staff.

Winners will be notified by August 1, 2009.
