National Benefits

Stamps Scholars Programs exist at more than 40 schools across the country with more than 2000 current and alumni Stamps Scholars. 

It all started in 2006 when Penny and Roe Stamps created merit scholarship programs for undergraduates at their alma maters – The University of Michigan and Georgia Tech.  Since then, the community has grown into a national network of visionary colleges and universities that partner with the Stamps Foundation.
