Two athletes will be awarded a scholarship of CAN $5,000

The Aliassime Tennis Academy is introducing a new Tennis Excellence scholarship. The Herisset Scholarships will allow two athletes performing on the national and international level, respectively. Both athletes (boy or girl) will receive a CAN $5000 subvention for the 2020-2021 season to help them through their tennis development.

To be eligible for the scholarship, the student-athlete must maintain an exemplary academic average of 85% and over, and showcase the Academy’s values, such as respect, commitment, fighting spirit and passion for the game.

Amongst the eligible athletes, the scholarship will be awarded in function of the athletes’ tennis performances, determined by the Academy’s selection committee.

The candidates must not necessarily be part of the Aliassime Academy to apply for the scholarship, but will be required to join the Academy full time upon acceptation of the scholarship.

To apply for the scholarships, the candidate must write an email to [email protected] and include the following informations:

  • Name and last name
  • Birth date
  • Introduction text including the athletes’ values
  • Academic average and institution
  • Best results of the year
  • Career highlights
  • Rankings

The scholarships were created in honour of Mr. Jacques Herisset, the founder of the Academy.
