The University of Notre Dame welcomes 11 undergraduate Stamps Scholars to the Class of 2020, marking an expansion of the partnership between Notre Dame and the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation. The partnership began in 2013, with the admission of five scholars each year since. The prestigious scholarship awards have now doubled to allow twice as many students per year to benefit from the scholarship.
“Notre Dame is thrilled to affirm and expand our partnership with the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation. With our incoming group of 11, we will be home to a total of 27 Stamps Scholars next fall. We are incredibly enthusiastic about this development,” said Mark Seamon, director of merit scholar programs at Notre Dame.
The Stamps Family Charitable Foundation, established in 1986 by Penny and Roe Stamps, sponsors multi-year merit scholarships at 41 institutions across the United States with the goal of helping exceptional students become meaningful leaders throughout society. Stamps Scholars are among the recipients of other prestigious awards, including Rhodes, Fulbright, Goldwater, Marshall and National Science Foundation scholarships.
