Sullivan Earns NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship

Lincoln - Husker baseball player Nick Sullivan was lauded for his performance in the classroom and on the diamond on Friday, as he was one of 58 NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship winners for the spring season.

The scholarship is a one-time grant of $7,500 to use toward postgraduate studies, and rewards student-athletes for their athletic and academic achievements, as well as campus involvement, community service, volunteer activities and demonstrated leadership.

Sullivan recently completed his career on the diamond, helping the Huskers to three NCAA Regionals during his career. As a senior, he hit .272 with seven homers and 29 RBIs, ranking second on the team in both homers and walks. He appeared in 169 games as a Husker, belting 12 homers and driving in 72 runs during his career.  Off the field, Sullivan graduated in May with a 3.78 GPA in finance. He was a three-time academic All-Big 12 pick and first-team CoSIDA Academic All-District VII honoree in 2008. Sullivan was a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for four seasons and was active in NU's Life Skills program.

Sullivan is the second Husker baseball player to receive an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship, as Daniel Bruce was a recipient in 2005. This the second postgraduate scholarship Sullivan received, as he also received the Dr. Prentice Gautt Postgraduate Scholarship from the Big 12 Conference.
