SAN FRANCISCO – Former UCLA first baseman Pat Gallagher was named a recipient of the 2015-2016 Pac-12 Conference Postgraduate Scholarship, as announced on Monday. The conference announced the 23 outstanding Pac-12 student-athletes who will receive a scholarship of $9,000. All 23 student-athletes maintained a minimum 3.0 grade point average and demonstrated a commitment to education, campus and community involvement, and leadership.

The Postgraduate Scholarship Program was created in 1999 to both honor and financially assist some of the Conference’s most outstanding athletes and scholars as they continue their educations. In a program change from previous years, the Pac-12 now annually awards up to 24 scholarships of $9,000 each to former and graduating student-athletes across the conference. Through its institutional selection process, each Pac-12 institution may select two student-athletes, one man and one woman, to be awarded the scholarship.

Gallagher appeared in 129 games over four years as a member of the UCLA Baseball team. The Reno, Nevada native was an integral member of the 2013 team which captured the program’s first ever National Championship. During that run to Omaha, Gallagher was named the Los Angeles Regional’s Most Outstanding Player and recorded the final out of the national title game. Finishing with a .216 career batting average, Gallagher was also a standout in the classroom, consistently earning a spot on the UCLA Director’s Honor Roll.
