About the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation & Stamps Scholars

In 2006, Penny and Roe Stamps created merit scholarship programs for undergraduates at their alma maters – The University of Michigan and Georgia Tech. Since then, the Stamps Scholars community has grown into a national network of visionary colleges and universities that partner with the Stamps Foundation to award multi-year scholarships that help driven and talented student leaders achieve their education and life goals.
