Purdue Stamps Leadership Scholarship

Purdue University is proud to be one of a select group of partner colleges and universities affiliated with the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation to provide not only scholarships to high-achieving undergraduate students, but also assist in providing access to a variety of academic enrichment opportunities. Thanks to the generosity of Roe and Penny Stamps, Purdue established the Stamps Leadership Scholarship in 2011, with the first awardees beginning their enrollment in the fall semester. At Purdue, students who are selected to participate in the Stamps Leadership Program are among the country’s top students, distinguishing themselves academically and as leaders in their communities. Purdue Stamps Scholars enroll in the Honors College in addition to their home disciplinary college.

At Purdue, the Stamps Leadership Scholarship covers the full educational costs of a bachelor’s degree and provides up to $10, 000 enrichment funds to cover expenses for summer research internships, professional academic conferences to present research poster, Purdue study abroad programs and unpaid internships or co-ops.
