Walter Byers Scholarship

The Johns Hopkins Department of Athletics ranks among the national leaders in all-time NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipients with 44 since Robert Smith earned the program's first in 1964-65. Since then, student-athletes in 14 different sports have earned this prestigious award.

There have been 10 years where Johns Hopkins has produced two or more NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipients, including the 2016-17 season. During the 1997-98 academic year, Hopkins produced a school-record four individuals who were selected.

The men's swimming (10), football (9) and men's basketball (7) teams lead the way as those three teams have combined for 26 of JHU's all-time NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships.
