Bowling Scholarships

Bowling is a good example of a sport where it’d be wise to utilize any connections to local leagues and organizations. If you’re good enough to play on your local league’s team, chances are you’re eligible for a number of scholarships. Most cities, states and regions also have their own bowling associations and scholarship funds earmarked for participants in their groups, or residents of those areas. These local awards often emphasize criteria outside of bowling, including community service, academic achievement and financial need.

Most larger schools have bowling programs and award scholarships based on talent. As bowling has become more high-visibility and more popular among student athletes, the level of competition has increased for school-funded scholarships. Much of the funding is controlled by organizations like the NCAA, which also means there is a great amount of emphasis placed on not only talent but academic records, as those awarded scholarships must meet certain GPA requirements. Check out some examples of bowling scholarships below.
