AMES, Iowa – Iowa State student-athletes Jamie Straube (volleyball) and Charlie Paul (track and field/cross country) have been selected to receive 2012-13 Dr. Prentice Gautt Postgraduate Scholarships. Straube and Paul are two of the 20 Big 12 student-athletes to be selected to receive the prestigious $9,000 grants.

The scholarships are named in honor of the late Dr. Prentice Gautt. Gautt, a former Big 12 Conference staff member and student services’ pioneer, passed away in March 2005. These individual grants have been awarded to 313 deserving post-graduate student-athletes in the Big 12 since 1996.

To be eligible for the grant, student-athletes must have a 3.5 cumulative grade point average and have plans to enroll in graduate or professional school within two years of graduation.

Straube, a three-time All-Big 12 First Team honoree and a staple at middle blocker in Christy Johnson-Lynch’s Cyclone volleyball program, was named the Big 12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year for volleyball in 2012. She graduated with 979 career kills, good for 10th in program history, while being just the second Cyclone ever to have a .300 career hitting percentage.

Paul, a distance runner under Iowa State head track and field and cross country coach Corey Ihmels, is a two-time first team Academic All-Big 12 honoree. The LeClaire, Iowa, native competed in the 5,000 and 10,000-meter runs at the Big 12 Outdoor Track and Field Championships for the Cyclones. Paul also finished 61st at the NCAA Midwest Regional cross country meet.
