Stamps Scholars

Open to incoming first-year Arizona residents, the Stamps Scholarship program recognizes and rewards exceptional scholars who exemplify leadership, scholarship, and service. The University of Arizona is one of the newest Stamps partner institutions, welcoming our first group of five Stamps Scholars for Fall 2020. In addition to significant financial support, Stamps Scholars enjoy social and cohort-building events and activities throughout the year. These exceptional students join a national community of Scholars and Scholar Alumni across the globe.

The Stamps Scholarship is one of the largest merit-based awards available to Arizona students; consisting of a generous scholarship package that covers:

  • Tuition & fees
  • Room & board
  • Books & supplies
  • A laptop or tablet (first year only)
  • and additional expenses

The scholarship also includes an additional $16,000 in enrichment funds over four years that can be used towards expenses such as:

  • Study abroad programs
  • Research or other internships
  • Academic or co-curricular conferences
  • Leadership training
