Junior Grand Slams

I was wondering if the players who participate in junior Grand Slams earn any points and money. I didn't find any information about it. Anyone knows how it works for the juniors?

No money.
Points count towards the Junior rankings, no impact on their senior ranking

Dulgheru // Gajdosova// Kanepi // Cetkovska // Svitolina // Niculescu // Errani

Thanks for the answer

Seems logical. I would have thought the players were earning some money. At least this is a great opportunity to gain experience on a big stage.

Sounds like USTA sponsors them...
Unless they were kicked out or not in shape for them

Re: Junior Grand Slams

I think a Junior GS Winner should get 50 or so Pro points
I mean, the fields are stronger than that and it would encourage people to play Juniors
