Three Student-Athletes Earn ACC Postgraduate Scholarships

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Three NC State student-athletes have been named Atlantic Coast Conference postgraduate award recipients, as announced by the conference office on Thursday. Josh Brockman, Kelsey Chimel and Nyls Korstanje earned the Weaver-James-Corrigan postgraduate scholarship. 

Allie Hays of the women’s cross country/track & field team was named an honorary scholarship nominee, as she plans to pursue professional careers instead of pursuing postgraduate courses.

Since the inception of the ACC postgraduate scholarship program, NC State has had more award winners than any other school in the league.

The Weaver-James-Corrigan is awarded to selected student-athletes who intend to pursue a graduate degree following completion of their undergraduate requirements. Each recipient will receive $6,000 toward his or her graduate education. Those honored have performed with distinction in both the classroom and their respective sport, while demonstrating exemplary conduct in the community.


The student-athletes will be honored at the annual Cone Health ACC Postgraduate Scholarship Luncheon presented by ESPN on April 10. The luncheon will be hosted by the Nat Greene Kiwanis Club at the Sheraton Four Seasons Hotel Imperial Ballroom in Greensboro, N. C.
