NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Notre Dame student-athletes Jen Renola and Jeremy Siek have been award NCAA postgraduate scholarships for $5,000 at the university or professional school of their choice. The NCAA has awarded postgraduate scholarships to 107 student-athletes, 36 men and 71 women, in sports other than football and basketball in which the NCAA conducts championships. The scholarships are awarded to student-athletes who maintain at least a 3.000 cumulative grade-point average and perform with distinction in varsity competition.

Notre Dame has now had 31 student-athletes awarded NCAA post-graduate scholarships since the program began in 1964. Renola is the first recipient in the nine-year history of women's soccer at Notre Dame. Siek is the fourth from men's fencing to win the award and the first since Paul Angelo in 1975.

The NCAA postgraduate scholarship marks the second post-graduate scholarship Renola has received after she was selected as the BIG EAST scholar-athlete for the 1996-97 year. Renola led Notre Dame to the NCAA women's soccer championship in 1995 where, as goalkeeper, she shut out all six of Notre Dame's post-season opponents on the way to the NCAA title. Renola was recognized as the National Soccer Coaches Association of America player of the year and was chosen as one of the NCAA Today's Top VIII. She was named GTE/CoSIDA Fall/Winter At-Large Academic All-American of the Year and was a first team Academic All-America selection. She graduated from the College of Arts and Letters with a degree in English with a 3.696 GPA.

Siek led Notre Dame's fencing team to the NCAA combined championships as a freshman in 1994 and to runner-up finishes in 1996 and 1997. He was a four-time All-American with three top-10 finishes at the NCAA championship. Siek compiled 192 career wins, the most ever by a Notre Dame foilist and the second-most ever by any Irish fencer. He was a two-time captain of the foil squad and was a member of Notre Dame's captain council. Siek graduated from the College of Science with a degree in mathematics and computer applications with a 3.441 GPA. He will pursue graduated studies at Notre Dame in the fall.
