STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford field hockey’s Hope Burke earned an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship, becoming the only Cardinal athlete to receive the accolade, as announced by the NCAA recently.

Burke, a double-major in history and African-American studies, was recognized during Thursday’s Stanford Athletic Board Awards on her accomplishment. Following this weekend’s Commencement Ceremony, Burke will travel to Baltimore, Md., to begin teaching for Teach for America.

Burke had an outstanding senior season on the field, leading Stanford with nine goals and tying for the team-lead in points with 22.

To qualify for an NCAA postgraduate scholarship, student-athletes must excel academically and athletically, be in their final year of eligibility and plan to pursue graduate study. Student-athletes must also maintain at least a 3.2 grade-point average and be nominated by their institution's faculty athletics representative.

The NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships were created in 1964 to promote and encourage education by rewarding the NCAA's most accomplished student-athletes.
