CLAIMING JBT SCHOLARSHIP MONEY
using JBT's scholarship management program, for valid scholarship requests.
* what's a valid request? To simplify, it's:
1) a check written to an educational institution for tuition or books, or
2) a check written to you equal to an amount in proven receipts from an educational institution.
We're a scholarship Tour. That's what a scholarship is. :-)
You may check on your JBT scholarship funds, or claim them at any time, via this website. If you'd like a hard copy of your current statement anytime, just contact us and we'll be happy to send you one (it's also below). Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions.
If you've moved since you last bowled a JBT event, we obviously won't have your current address. Please contact us anytime to update address, email, or other contact information.
You may request to claim your scholarship money using the form below. Please take a moment to review the sample scholarship statement below to see exactly how your funds may be used. Remember, our website will only list funds won in JBT events (not non-JBT events like your city tournament, state tournament, etc.). Also, 2006-07 Pac NW events, and select other JBT events (primarily Junior Gold Qualifiers) use the USBC 'smart' accounting system- check the USBC website, www.bowl.com, for those funds. Again, just ask if you have any questions- one of the many reasons we use our own program is so that we can have this one-on-one communication with you.
Note: If you choose to move on to adult bowling, your JBT earnings are NOT forfeited, so you don't need to claim your funds before you 'go adult'. Once you earn a scholarship, it's yours to claim in the manner below, until your 23rd birthday, whether you are an adult or junior at the time you claim.
TO MAKE A SCHOLARSHIP CLAIM REQUEST: Email the info listed below to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, OR print this out, and mail it to: JBT, PO BOX 20011, Seattle WA 98102; OR fax to (888) 788-4961
Who you want the check made payable to
If you want your check sent to a different address other than your current address (which we don't recommend), note that:
Please attach in your email a copy of the tuition bill or other eligible expense you are requesting funds for.
If you are requesting the check to be made out to you or a parent and not to the school, you must attach documentation (bookstore receipts, for example) at least equal to the amount you are requesting.
If you can't attach these items in an email, please mail or fax us copies of this information to complete your request.
Notes: We will reply with a confirmation that we received your request. This is not necessarily approval of your request, just confirmation that we received it. If everything's good, we'll send you your check to the address you requested, generally within 2-3 weeks, often sooner, depending on the current volume of requests (July-October tend to be busiest), and any secondary research we need to do. In this age of most everyone using email, please remember it is still not a 100% reliable technology. If a request is taking longer than expected, we might not have received the email. You can always call us at 480-748-9299 or fax at 888-788-4961 if you have any concerns about your email. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Sample scholarship statement:
OF SCHOLARSHIP MONIES HELD
Your performance(s) in the Junior Bowlers Tour
have earned you a grand
total of the following amount of unclaimed
scholarship money as of August 1, xxxx:
A bowler may apply for scholarship monies earned upon acceptance to or anytime during college or any institution of higher learning, or private schools requiring tuition, or trade schools, online schools, or similar institutions. Checks are made payable to your school for any or all of the money in your account, at any time which you are eligible to receive funds. Funds are for tuition or direct reimbursement for books, and may not be used for bowling tournaments, travel expenses, laptop computers without a note from an educational institution stating that such an item is a necessary educational expense (see above), or other such items. A spreadsheet with all bowlers’ career and season JBT winnings, claimed and unclaimed, is available at every tournament site, as well as on the website, www.bowljbt.com. Funds are disbursed through Arizona Central Credit Union in the "Junior Bowlers Tour Scholarship Fund Account".
Any funds not yet recovered from NSF checks, unpaid entries, etc. will be withheld until payment is made.
sure to save this document for your records. Funds not claimed by the bowler’s 23rd birthday
are forfeited and recycled into current JBT scholarship programs unless notification of a request for an extension is received
before that time.
It is the bowlers’ responsibility to notify the JBT if you are moving, so materials can be sent to the proper address. We have provided a post office box for all JBT correspondence. If you have any questions, or would like to request your money, please contact us through the JBT website at www.bowljbt.com, or via mail at:
P.O. Box 20011
Seattle, WA 98102
At that time a check will be mailed to you (made payable to your school) for the amount listed above. Checks are generally mailed within 2 weeks of completed requests.
Congratulations again on your accomplishments with the JBT.
