Thompson Awarded NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship


NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship Program

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Skylar Thompson, who recently completed her eligibility with the Ohio State Women’s Golf team, has been awarded an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship in the amount of $10,000, the NCAA announced.

The funds can used for part- or full-time graduate study at a university or professional school.

Thompson, a native of Buford, Georgia, earned a bachelor’s degree in Speech and Hearing Science last spring. She is a two-time Big Ten Distinguished Scholar and three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection. She earned Ohio State Scholar Athlete honors four times and was a Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar in 2020.

In four seasons in Columbus, Thompson competed in 21 events and 60 rounds.

The NCAA awards up to 126 postgraduate scholarships annually.  The scholarships are awarded to student-athletes who excel academically and athletically and who are at least in their final year of intercollegiate athletics competition.

The one-time non-renewable scholarships of $10,000 are awarded three times a year corresponding to each sport season (fall, winter and spring).  Each sports season there are 21 scholarships available for men and 21 scholarships available for women for use in an accredited graduate program.

All former student-athletes who earned an undergraduate degree from an NCAA member school are eligible to be nominated by that school for an NCAA graduate degree scholarship, regardless of when they received their undergraduate degree.
