Star of Tomorrow
The Star of Tomorrow scholarship was established in 1998 by the Salt Lake City Women's Bowling Association to recognize one female youth bowler annually with a $1,000 scholarship. The scholarship recognized those who excelled both on and off the lanes - as the criteria was balanced around bowling performance, service and scholastic achievements. Today, the GSLBA continues this wonderful tradition by awarding one male and one female the Star of Tomorrow Scholarship annually. The youth bowlers are the future of our sport and we are honored to give those youth bowlers the chance to further their education and bowling goals through this scholarship.
