Hannaway awarded postgraduate scholarship

By Doug Fitzgerald published May 2, 2007


Patrick Hannaway became the first University of Colorado at Colorado Springs student-athlete to be awarded an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.

Hannaway was one of four men's basketball players in the nation to receive the scholarship. Lee Humphrey of Florida, Jonathan Wiley of Montana State Billings and Benjamin Chojnacki of Ohio Wesleyan were the others.

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.

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 3.2 (based on a 4.0 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.

Hannaway has maintained a 3.92 GPA in Biology and plans to attend medical school.
