Four swimmers win NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships
Emory Eagles News | May 7, 2012
Four seniors are newly honored as recipients of the NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships, based on their achievements both in and out of the pool during their time with the program. Emory has now been awarded 74 postgraduate scholarships over the school's history, and its 57 since 2000 are more than any other NCAA institution except Stanford University.
Anne Culpepper, Daniel Kolb, Claire Pavlak and Paul Weinstein of the Emory Eagles Swimming and Diving teams have each been awarded one of the prestigious scholarships. Each of the four winners will receive a one-time $7,500 scholarship, to be used for postgraduate study within three years. Emory's four winners were the most by any NCAA school during the winter season.
The scholarships are awarded to student-athletes who excel academically and athletically and who are in their final year of intercollegiate athletics competition. The NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship was created in 1964 to promote and encourage postgraduate education by rewarding the Association's most accomplished student-athletes through their participation in NCAA championship and/or emerging sports.
