This fall, thirty-six partner schools across the country will collectively welcome the 11th class of Stamps Scholars to their campuses. Selected from over 400,000 applications, the new freshman class is made up of 209 Scholars with diverse academic interests including biomedical engineering, public policy, medicine, music, and education.
Stamps Scholars are chosen for their strong leadership potential, academic merit, and exceptional character. The Foundation supports promising students who are eager to make their contributions to the world and have the work ethic to make their dreams a reality.
For the 2016-2017 school year, four incoming freshmen have been selected as Stamps Scholars at University of Southern California. The Stamps Scholarship covers tuition for four years of undergraduate study. Other benefits of the Stamps Scholarship include: participation in a national day of service; access to a growing network of scholars and alumni; and opportunities to attend biennial conventions, where Scholars are able to network with one another and learn from recognized leaders.
Stamps Scholars are known for their significant contributions to their campuses. Thirty Stamps Scholars have won nationally prestigious academic awards to further both undergraduate and graduate studies. These include Fulbright, Gates Cambridge, Goldwater, Marshall, Rhodes, Truman, and Schwarzman Scholarships.
Beyond graduation, Stamps Scholars continue to distinguish themselves in their professional and graduate careers. Stamps alumni are working with top companies and organizations such as Google, McKinsey & Company, and NASA and pursuing graduate degrees at prestigious universities such as MIT, Stanford, and Oxford.
“We’re very excited about this new class of Stamps Scholars,” said Roe Stamps, founder and chairman of the Stamps Foundation. “A hearty congratulations to our partner schools for selecting and attracting such a wonderful group of students.”
