The Bowling Writers Association of America (BWAA) Chuck Pezzano Scholarship application deadline has been extended to June 1, 2010. Committee chairman Joan Romeo said “BWAA has so many talented young writers who applied for the 2009 scholarship. We wanted to give the students every opportunity to submit their application in these tough economic times”.
The scholarship is named in honor of world renowned journalist Chuck Pezzano of Clifton, NJ whose many tributes include being a member of both the USBC and PBA Halls of Fame. Up to three (3) scholarships per year may be awarded based on the applicant’s credentials. Individuals may not be awarded more than $1500 per application and yearly combined scholarships will not exceed $3,000. Any or all of the funds will be distributed at the discretion of the committee. Winners will also receive a one year paid membership in BWAA.
