NCAA GRADUATE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship Program
The NCAA awards up to 174 postgraduate scholarships annually, 87 for men and 87 for women. The scholarships are awarded to student-athletes who excel academically and athletically and who are in their final year of intercollegiate athletics competition.
The one-time grants of $7,500 each are awarded for fall sports, winter sports and spring sports. Each sports season (fall, winter and spring), there are 29 scholarships available for men and 29 scholarships available for women. The scholarships are one-time, non-renewable grants. Separate nomination forms and information must be submitted for each sport.
Eligibility is restricted to student-athletes at NCAA member institutions who, in their final year of eligibility, have performed with distinction as members of varsity teams in the sport for which they were nominated. Nominees must have a minimum grade-point average of 3.200 (based on a 4.000 scale), be nominated by the faculty athletics representative or designee, and intend to continue academic work beyond the baccalaureate degree as a part-time or full-time graduate student.
Selections are made three times each academic year. Nomination booklets are sent to faculty athletics representatives, directors of athletics, senior woman administrators, and conference commissioners. Booklets are mailed fall sports in September, for winter sports in November and for spring sports in February. The nomination form and supporting information must be submitted during the correct seasonal category in relation to that sport. Candidates are screened by seven regional selection committees, and winners are selected by the NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship Committee. The staff contact is Teresa Smith.
