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 the following:
*Enrichment fund expenses are subject to prior approval by the Office of the Provost.
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 the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation.
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 University of Miami partners with the Stamps Scholars program to award multi-year scholarships to help driven and talented student leaders achieve their education and life goals. Stamps Scholars pursue their educational interests while developing their leadership skills with merit based financial aid including enrichment funds that can be used for study abroad, cultural exchanges, research projects and other educational experiences. Stamps Scholars also join a community of more than 1000 current and graduate Scholars around the world with whom they network and share their experiences..
