NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Rower Jamie Redman, who helped Yale win two NCAA varsity eight championships, has been awarded a 2007-08 NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship. Redman graduated from Yale in May after majoring in history of science/history of medicine.
As a senior, she sat in the No. 5 seat in the Yale varsity eight that won the Grand Final at the NCAA Championships by less than a second. She also was in the No. 5 seat as a junior, helping the Bulldogs to an undefeated season that included a victory at the NCAA Championship.
Redman is a three-time Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Scholar Athlete. She was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District I at-large first team and earned Academic All-Ivy recognition this spring.
A total of 58 (29 for men and 29 for women) one-time, nonrenewable grants of $7,500 each are available during each of three sports seasons (fall, winter, spring). The scholarships are awarded to student-athletes who excel academically and athletically and who are in their final year of intercollegiate athletics competition.
The Association awards up to 174 postgraduate scholarships annually, 87 for men and 87 for women.
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.
