Pac-12 selects 2015-16 Postgraduate Scholarship winners

SAN FRANCISCO – The Pac-12 Conference announced today the 23 outstanding Pac-12 student-athletes who have been named recipients of Pac-12 Postgraduate Scholarships for the 2015-16 academic year. The scholarships, worth $9,000 each, are awarded to up to two student-athletes from each Pac-12 school annually. These worthy student-athletes maintained a minimum 3.0 grade point average and demonstrated a commitment to education, campus and community involvement, and leadership. 

To be selected for a Pac-12 Postgraduate Scholarship, a student-athlete must have:

•    Maintained an overall undergraduate minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 (based on a 4.00 scale);
•    Completed his/her final season of intercollegiate athletics eligibility in all sports or be in his/her final year of undergraduate study, having exhausted athletics eligibility in all sports;
•    Been accepted to or already be enrolled as a full-time student in a graduate or professional program at an accredited institution, or in a postgraduate program for which an undergraduate degree is required for admission;
•    Performed with distinction as a member of a varsity team; and
•    Exemplified behavior, both in competition and beyond, in a manner that has brought credit to the student-athlete, the institution, and intercollegiate athletics.

“This year’s recipients are excellent representatives of the Pac-12 and wonderful examples of the power of collegiate sports to help young people reach their goals,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. “We are honored to help these student-athletes continue their education and look forward to watching them positively impact their communities.” 

The student-athletes awarded this scholarship will pursue postgraduate education at schools like Oxford University and the London School of Economics as well as at several Pac-12 member institutions. They will study everything from medicine and law to business, social work, politics, and more.

In 1999, the Postgraduate Scholarship Program was created to both honor and financially assist some of the Conference’s most outstanding athletes and scholars as they continue their educations. In a program change from previous years, the Pac-12 now annually awards up to 24 scholarships of $9,000 each to former and graduating student‐athletes across the conference. Through its institutional selection process, each Pac-12 institution may select two student-athletes, one man and one woman, to be awarded the scholarship.
