There are various ways to earn scholarships today. Some require students to answer a questionnaire, complete a writing prompt or create an essay. Quinnz Pinz in Middletown is even offering students the chance to bowl their way to a scholarship.
Through the 2017/2018 Stars of Tomorrow Junior Bowling Scholarship Program, Quinnz Pinz is helping bowlers from kindergarten through high school develop useful life skills, at and beyond the lanes. The program is designed to offer students scholarship opportunities through various bowling awards and tournaments.
Perhaps the program’s biggest draw is the fact that all bowlers are eligible for scholarships, regardless of skill level.
The Quinnz Pinz In-House Scholarships include awards for sportsmanship, attendance, high score, most improved and high series. Scholarships are also awarded based on player fundraising.
Last year, $3,000 in In-House Scholarships were awarded to participants in the program.
In addition to the Quinnz Pinz support, bowlers also have the opportunity to compete for national scholarships such as the USBC Annual Zeb Scholarship, Gift for Life Scholarship, USBC Chuck Hall Scholarship, USBC Youth Ambassador, USBC Earl Anthony Scholarship and the USBC Alberta Crowe Scholarships.
Although bowling offers tangible financial benefits, the sport also affords children and teenagers the chance to socialize, meet new people and learn sportsmanship. Quinnz Pinz’s fall season is currently underway, with winter sessions set to begin on January 6.
