    PBA’s Billy Welu Scholarship Applications Due May 31

    SEATTLE, Wash. (May 11, 2009) * - The application deadline for the annual Billy Welu Scholarship, which recognizes exemplary qualities in male and female college students who compete in the sport of bowling, is approaching. Applications must be postmarked by May 31.

    The Welu Scholarship winner receives a $1,000 award. For more information and an application please go to

    To be eligible, candidates must be amateur bowlers who are currently in college (preceding the application deadline) and maintain at least a 2.5/4.0 GPA or equivalent.

    Heather D’Errico of Robert Morris College was the 2008 winner and Ricki Williams of Wichita State University earned the honor in 2007.

    A PBA Charter Member, Welu was inducted into both the PBA and United States Bowling Congress Halls of Fame in 1975 after his untimely passing in 1974. Welu won the BPAA All-Star competition in 1959 before winning the 1964 and ‘65 USBC Masters titles.

    From 1962-1974 Welu served as the color commentator alongside fellow PBA Hall of Famer Chris Schenkel for ABC Sports telecasts of the Professional Bowlers Tour. The affable broadcaster was PBA President for two years, a member of the PBA Tournament Committee for eight years and served for 16 years on the Executive Board. Welu also was PBA Secretary for two years and Second Vice President for three years.
