Stamps Foundation Announces the Eleventh Class of Stamps Scholars

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – 30 May, 2016 – 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 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.

At most partner schools, the Stamps Scholarship covers all expenses for four years of undergraduate study and also includes a monetary enrichment fund that Scholars can use for their academic and professional development. 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. “We’ve seen our Stamps Scholars start emergency food banks for lower SES students, serve three times in the past five years as student body president, build hybrid cars, and work with campus administrators to create more student friendly exam schedules,” said Chaffee Viets, Stamps Scholars Program Director at Georgia Tech. “What encourages me is that Stamps Scholars everywhere are impacting their campuses in similar, yet diverse ways.”

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.”
