Over the past few years, bowling  has risen to the ranks as a respected NCAA sport in some parts of the country. Intercollegiate tournaments and championships are even broadcasted on television.

This makes one thing clear: college bound students should consider bowling as a sport.

 As a result, Youth Business University in partnership with Stars and Strikes Entertainment Center is offering a bowling league to Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and College Students.

The Youth Business University Bowling League in partnership with Stars and Strikes Entertainment Center is sanction under the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) which is a sports membership organization dedicated to ten-pin bowling in the United States. It was formed in 2005 by a merger of the American Bowling CongressWomen's International Bowling Congress, Young American Bowling Alliance, and USA Bowling. The USBC is the national governing body for ten-pin bowling in the United States. It has approximately 3,000 local associations across the USA serving over 2 million members01 USBC Youth SMART.jpg - 3.39 KB

 Youth Business University Bowling League in partnership with Stars and Strikes will place $80.00 of the $192.00 bowling fee into a scholarship fund which is managed by the Scholarship Management and Accounting Reporting for Tenpins (SMART).

SMART is the only youth scholarship fund recognized by the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), through a separate corporation.

The SMART program was established in 1994 in order to manage and store bowling scholarships until the youth bowler requests the use of the scholarships for college.

Youth Business University Bowling League in partnership with Stars and Strikes Entertainment Center will also offer the Grand Prix Scholarship Program which is a program open to all youth bowlers who have not graduated from high school.  This scholarship program is designed to award participation in youth bowling to help youth bowlers build a scholarship account for their college years.

The Grand Prix Scholarship Program rewards participation, not size, speed, or skill.  Enrolled youth bowlers will receive "points" in their local center by participating in the Youth Business University Bowling League and other related bowling activities. 

Each year the "points" will be converted to scholarship dollars and credited under the youth bowler’s name until they graduate from high school.  When the student graduates from high school, 100% of all funds raised locally will be paid to the educational institute (trade school, college, university or technical school) of their choice on their behalf.  In order to enroll in the Grand Prix Scholarship Program, a youth bowler must apply for registration in August of each year and pay an annual fee of $2.00 which is for administration fees.

In addition to the above, Youth Business University will assist graduating high school students with acquiring other scholarships via our Youth Strategic Educational and College Planning Seminars.
