We are passionate about the sport of bowling and the education of the next generation of players.

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to see our sport grow by raising scholarships for youth bowlers and distribute those funds through tournaments nationwide. We want to encourage youth bowlers by supporting their educational pursuits!

How We Raise Scholarships at no cost to you

When you click a link on this site and shop on any of our featured retailers, Youth Bowling Scholarships of America (YBSA) earns a commission which we use to build scholarships for youth bowlers.  The best part is: you don't have to pay an extra penny, do any paperwork, or make a donation! It's as simple as Click, Shop, Scholarships.

If 5% of sanctioned bowlers used this site to spend $500 annually at Amazon, YBSA would be able to provide $1.5 million in bowling scholarships! The average Amazon Prime customer spends $1,500 annually. Bowlers, tell all your Amazon Prime Friends about our program. Anyone can use our links and it doesn’t cost them any extra!

WHERE WILL THE SCHOLARSHIPS BE AWARDED?

YBSA will award 2018-19 scholarship grants to USBC State Youth Tournaments and Youth Tours. If the bowling public will get behind this program and over $1 million is raised, additional grants will be awarded to USBC Junior Gold and Teen Masters. 


YBSA’s program is ingenious.
