Since 2011, the University of Georgia Foundation Fellowship has been a proud partner of the Stamps Scholars Program, which awards generous multi-year scholarships nationwide with additional enrichment funds for students to use toward their academic and professional development.
UGA Stamps Scholars are part of a larger Stamps network of 36 institutions with more than 2,500 current scholars and alumni around the world.
UGA Stamps Scholars are part of the Foundation Fellowship and are selected through the Foundation Fellowship application process. The Fellowship is UGA’s premier academic undergraduate scholarship that places students in a community of similarly dedicated scholars.
The Foundation Fellows office, housed within the Morehead Honors College, manages the selection of UGA Stamps Scholars. More than 1,000 top students from around the nation and the world apply for the Foundation Fellowship each November, and each February finalists are interviewed by UGA administrators, faculty, alumni, and trustees.
From each year’s class of Foundation Fellows, six students are nominated to interview for the Stamps Scholarship each year.
In addition, three second-year Honors students are selected each year as “walk-on” Stamps Scholars through the Mid-Term Foundation Fellowship selection process.
The Stamps Scholars and Foundation Fellowship programs look for students who meet a very high academic threshold. Beyond that, the programs seek students who are leaders in their schools and communities, who possess special artistic, athletic, and other talents, who demonstrate intense intellectual curiosity about the world around them, and who possess a commitment to share their knowledge and gifts.

About the Stamps Scholars Program
The Stamps Scholars Program was founded by E. Roe Stamps IV and his late wife Penny in 2006, with the purpose of enabling extraordinary educational experiences for extraordinary students. The program began at their alma maters – the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Michigan, respectively. Since then, the Stamps Scholars community has grown into a national network of visionary colleges and universities that partner with the Stamps Scholars Program to award scholarships that help driven and talented student leaders achieve their education and life goals.
The Stamps Scholars Program and partner schools, such as the University of Georgia, share the costs of the awards.
