The United States Bowling Congress Scholarship Management and Account Reporting for Tenpins program is making an additional investment earnings allocation up to $750,000 in 2022 to provide additional scholarships for youth bowlers in support of the SMART Pell Grant Match program.

In February, SMART announced $1.2 million in funding for the new SMART Pell Grant Match program, and there has been enough interest in the program to exhaust the initial allocation. The SMART Oversight Committee approved additional funding of up to $750,000 to continue accepting qualified applications for the program through the rest of the year.

“Changes to the SMART program earlier this year are succeeding in our goal to increase use of scholarship funds by more youth bowlers,” said Frank Wilkinson, proprietor of Rab’s Country Lanes in Staten Island, N.Y., and Chair of the USBC SMART Committee. “The SMART Pell Grant Match is proving to be a great success in helping students within our bowling community, so SMART is adding more resources to meet the need.”
