Purpose: The Walter Byers Postgraduate Scholarship Program was established as a means of recognizing the contributions of the former executive director through encouraging excellence in academic performance by student-athletes. Under this program, one male and one female student-athlete are annually awarded a postgraduate scholarship in recognition of outstanding academic achievement and potential for success in postgraduate study. It is intended that an individual named a Byers Scholar will be recognized as one who has combined the best elements of mind and body to achieve national distinction for his or her achievements, and promises to be a future leader in his or her chosen field of career service.
Composition: Six members, including one position allocated for a man, one allocated for a woman and four unallocated. (Adopted: 1/10/90, Revised: 5/2/13)
