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.
