The Stamps President’s Scholars Program

The Stamps President’s Scholars Program is Georgia Tech’s premier merit-based scholarship. Since its inception in 1981, the program has maintained as its objective the selection and enrollment of students who have demonstrated excellence in scholarship, leadership, progress, and service and have strong potential to become leaders on campus and in the community. The scholarship offers two levels of awards. For the students who enter Georgia Tech as first-years in fall of 2016, the four-year award amounts will be: Georgia resident: 1) full cost of attendance Stamps President’s Scholarship (n=20); non-Georgia resident: 1) full cost of attendance Stamps President’s Scholarship (n=20); and 2) Gold Scholarship (non-resident tuition waiver).

To ensure consideration for the Stamps President’s Scholarship, a student must submit the Georgia Tech application for admission by October 15 of the fall prior to enrolling. The most qualified applicants in terms of high school grades, course rigor, standardized test scores, writing ability, and demonstrated leadership and involvement in activities are selected as scholarship semifinalists. Each semifinalist is interviewed by a Regional Committee in January or February.

Approximately 100 of the top-ranked candidates in the competition are invited as finalists to attend the Finalist Weekend on campus in the spring. About 40 will be offered a Stamps President’s Scholarship in 2016.
