Dartmouth Football Academic Honors


Academic All-America | NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships | NFF Scholar-Athletes | NFF Hampshire Honor Society | FCS ADA Academic All-Stars | Academic All-Ivy


At a time when some would suggest that the phrase “student-athlete” is an oxymoron, Dartmouth continues to demonstrate that excellence in academics and athletics are not mutually exclusive.

Dartmouth has one of the nation’s highest graduation rates of football players in the country. Since the first Big Green Academic All-America selection in 1968, Dartmouth has had 49 student-athletes —16 of them football players — chosen a total of 58 times for Academic All-America status. Twelve Dartmouth football players have also received NCAA postgraduate scholarships and six have received National Football Foundation scholar-athlete grants.

These statistics illustrate the premium that Dartmouth places on the blend of academic achievement with athletics and general fitness. Dartmouth encourages a well-rounded interest in many activities—from music and art to student government and volunteer community service.
