The NYSW 600 Bowling Club supports and encourages young female bowlers with our Education Awards. The club provides the Pat Zonneville Memorial Scholarship to a graduating high school youth bowler who has applied to an institution of higher education (college, university, vocational or technical) to help them get started with their degree. The club also offers the Frances Lansbury Memorial Adult Learner Education Award to assist the continuing education of a female student who has already begun their studies. These Education Awards for young female bowlers are funded by our membership.

Pat Zonneville Memorial Scholarship - Any graduating high school female bowler who is a member of a league or High School bowling team certified by USBC and is in good standing for the current season is eligible for the award. The bowler must be sponsored by a current member of the NYSW 600 Bowling Club and must submit a complete application by March 1st to be considered.

Carolyne plans on majoring in Chemical Engineering and has decided to go to Clarkson.

In Carolyne's own words "You cannot define Carolyne Shultes without using the word 'bowling'. I have received an abundance of awards for the hard work and time I put into my craft. My interpersonal and personal skills have developed and improved tremendously as a result of my bowling experiences. Bowling is not just my background or talent, it is my identity. Bowling will forever be a meaningful part of my character and catalyst for my future goals."
