Kinesiology alum earns Pac-12 postgraduate scholarship

Oregon State baseball player and kinesiology alum Jack Anderson has earned a Pac-12 Postgraduate Scholarship. The scholarship, worth $9,000, is awarded to up to two student-athletes from each Pac-12 school annually.

To be eligible, Jack maintained a minimum 3.0 grade point average and demonstrated a commitment to education, campus and community involvement and leadership.

A native of Lake Oswego, Oregon, Jack recently graduated with a major in kinesiology (3.71 GPA) and minor in business. He announced prior to the 2018 season that he will attend Regis University in Denver starting in August, pursuing a graduate degree in physical therapy. He was named the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year for baseball in June.

Jack was a three-time Pac-12 All-Academic selection and twice named a CoSIDA Academic All-District 8 selection. He served as the community service liaison for the Oregon State baseball program, and the Vice President of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. He was heavily involved in community service, from participating in Beavers Without Borders to volunteering at animal shelters, among many other events.

He played in 175 games over four seasons for Oregon State, batting .276 with 18 doubles, two triples, one home run and 67 runs batted in. He was named All-Pac-12 in 2017.

To be selected for a Pac-12 Postgraduate Scholarship, a student-athlete must have:

  • Maintained an overall undergraduate minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 (based on a 4.00 scale);
  • Completed his/her final season of intercollegiate athletics eligibility in all sports or be in his/her final year of undergraduate study, having exhausted athletics eligibility in all sports;
  • Been accepted to or already be enrolled as a full-time student in a graduate or professional program at an accredited institution, or in a postgraduate program for which an undergraduate degree is required for admission;
  • Performed with distinction as a member of a varsity team; and
  • Exemplified behavior, both in competition and beyond, in a manner that has brought credit to the student-athlete, the institution and intercollegiate athletics.
