Stamps Scholars

Purdue Stamps Scholars enroll in the Honors College in addition to their home disciplinary college.

Purdue Stamps 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 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 Scholars Program are among the country’s top students, distinguishing themselves academically and as leaders in their communities.

Intrigued by the Stamps Scholars? They have been quite busy with service projects, research and study abroad. Read our newsletter to meet this year’s graduating class and see how the scholars spent their year.
