Apply as freshman applicants to the University of Miami under either the early decision or early action option (by November 1).
Each year, the University of Miami selects exceptional and academically accomplished high school students to become Stamps Scholars and receive the Stamps Scholarship—the University's most selective and prestigious academic scholarship award.
University of Miami Stamps Scholars receive the full cost of attendance for four years (eight semesters) of undergraduate study at UM, which includes full tuition and fees, standard room and board, textbooks, a one-time allowance for the purchase of a computer and access to a $12,000 enrichment fund which may be used toward study abroad, undergraduate research, unpaid internships, conferences, leadership development, and other educational purposes.
Prospective scholars must apply as freshman applicants to the University of Miami under either the early decision or early action option (by November 1). There is no separate application required to be considered for the Stamps Scholarship - early decision and early action applicants are automatically considered when they apply for early admission to UM.
Selected candidates for the Stamps Scholarship are invited to participate in the Scholarship Weekend at the University of Miami. During this weekend program, candidates will meet with University of Miami faculty and current scholars. Scholarship candidates and their families learn about the unique educational and leadership opportunities available to the best and brightest students at the University of Miami. They also learn about the University of Miami's interest-driven education, meet both current and other prospective student scholars, and attend a special scholarship dinner. After the weekend, a selection committee identifies finalists whom they recommend to receive the Stamps Scholarship based on the students' overall achievement and performance during the weekend. Finalists participate in an additional interview with Mr. Roe Stamps, and the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation determines which finalists receive the scholarship.
Requirements for renewal:
A Stamps Scholar must complete a full-time program of study with no fewer than 12 credit hours during each of the fall and spring semesters for a minimum of 24 credit hours per academic year. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 must be maintained at the University of Miami, with the initial calculation at the end of the second semester of attendance.
The Stamps Family Charitable Foundation partners with visionary colleges and universities to award multi-year scholarships that enable extraordinary educational experiences. Scholars receive annual awards that range from $72,000 to $5,000 (four-year awards total an average of $288,000 – $20,000) with additional funds for enrichment activities such as study abroad, academic conferences, and leadership training. The Stamps Family Charitable Foundation and partner schools evenly share the costs of the awards.
