Postgraduate Scholarship

The Monogram Club postgraduate scholarships are two grants of $5,000 each awarded to senior Monogram winners in recognition of outstanding academic achievement and potential for success in postgraduate study. The scholarship may be used in the recipient’s first postgraduate year or deferred for one year.

The applicant must be a senior Monogram winner who is considering applying to graduate school (or has been accepted to graduate school). If you will have fulfilled all Monogram requirements by the end of your senior year, you are eligible to apply. Scholarship recipients are selected based on academic merit and history of service to the University and community.

1. Senior student-athletes/support staff will receive an email with a link to the application.

2. Complete application form and brief essay of up to 750 words.
* You won’t be able to obtain your transcript or submit professor recommendation until essay is submitted.

3. Request a copy of your official transcript. This is done via insideND and typing in `transcript request’.

4. One recommendation from current or former academic professor.

If you have any questions about the application process please contact Reggie Brooks, Director, Student-Athlete Alumni Relations & Engagement, at (574) 631-0446 or
