Belk, Geraghty Earn Pac-12 Postgraduate Scholarships
BOULDER — University of Colorado student-athletes, Wilson Belk of the men's golf team and Libby Geraghty of the women's soccer team, have both been awarded Pac-12 Postgraduate scholarships, the conference office announced Monday.
The scholarships, created in 1999 and worth $9,000 each, are awarded to up to two student-athletes from each Pac-12 school annually. To qualify for the award, student-athletes first must have maintained a minimum 3.0 grade point average, performed with distinction as a member of a varsity team and demonstrated a commitment to education, campus and community involvement and leadership.
In addition, they must have 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. They also must have displayed exemplified behavior, both in competition and beyond, in a manner that has brought credit to the student-athlete, the institution and intercollegiate athletics.
Belk, a four-year letterman for the Buffaloes, is enrolled in CU's School of Medicine and is pursuing a Doctor of Medicine degree. He also met or exceeded similar qualifications required to earn a $10,000 scholarship from the NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship Committee. He earned his bachelor's degree in Integrative Physiology from CU in 2019 and owned a 3.674 GPA as an undergraduate.
Geraghty, a three-year letterwinner and 4.0 student throughout her undergraduate career, has been attending CU Boulder in pursuing her Master of Science in Integrative Physiology. She earned her bachelor's degree in Integrative Physiology from CU this past May.
