Brown senior men's soccer player Adom Crew (Columbia, MD) has been awarded a post-graduate scholarship from the NCAA. Crew was one of 58 student-athletes from around the nation and one of three from the Ivy League to receive the $7,500 scholarship.
To qualify for an NCAA postgraduate scholarship, a student-athlete must have an overall grade-point average of 3.200 (on a 4.000 scale) or its equivalent and must have performed with distinction as a member of the varsity team in the sport in which the student-athlete was nominated.
The student-athlete must have behaved, both on and off the field, in a manner that has brought credit to the student-athlete, the institution and intercollegiate athletics. The student-athlete also must intend to continue academic work beyond the baccalaureate degree as a full-time or part-time graduate student.
Crew, an economics major, was named a Verizon National Third Team Academic All-American this past November. He led the Bears to the 2003 Ivy League Title, recording a league-high 10 goals and 22 points. He was named the Ivy Player of the Year as well as an NSCAA/adidas First Team All-American.
Brown's tenth all-time leading scorer, Crew was recently drafted by the Columbus Crew of the MLS.
