The NCAA’s 2013 spring sports postgraduate scholarship winners have been announced, with 13 male and nine female outdoor track & field student-athletes from all three divisions each receiving $7,500 to pursue post-graduate studies.

The track & field recipients are part of a larger class of 29 men and 29 women from all NCAA spring sports, and a total of 174 between men and women when including fall and winter sports.

Per the NCAA, to qualify student-athletes must excel academically and athletically, be in their final year of eligibility and plan to pursue graduate study. A 3.2 grade point average and a nomination by their institution’s faculty athletics representative are also requirements to be eligible for the award.

The scholarship has been awarded since 1964.
