BCAW Scholarship Program

BCAW established this program in 1995 to provide scholarships to employees of BCAW member bowling centers and their families.  As a benefit of membership, BCAW has awarded over $85,000 to students continuing their education beyond high school.  We are happy to continue this program in 2017.

BCAW will award four $1,000 scholarships based on the following criteria:

  • academic accomplishment
  • civic & volunteer service
  • employment history
  • a 250 word (minimum) essay on “How bowling has influenced my life”

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • be a current employee of a BCAW member bowling center or an immediate family member of a current BCAW member center employee
  • be a graduating high school senior or have a post high school diploma or equivalent; and be under the age of 22 as of March 1, 2017
  • not have received a BCAW Scholarship Program award in the past
  • submit a completed application to the BCAW Office, postmarked no later than March 1, 2017
