Recipients double for 2018, include five out-of-state students
It’s an exciting time for the University of Oregon, as this year’s Stamps Scholars prepare to arrive on campus this fall.
In partnership with the Atlanta-based Stamps Family Charitable Foundation, the UO has increased its number of scholarships to 10 — five to in-state students, as it has since 2013, and five additional awards to out-of-state students.
These 10 incoming freshmen will make a total of 28 Stamps Scholars currently enrolled at the UO.
“The Stamps Foundation has been a great partner with us,” said Roger Thompson, vice president for student services and enrollment management. “By being able to offer five more scholarships, we’re able to bring even more amazing students to the UO.”
This year the UO has partnered with the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation to expand our number of awards. This prestigious scholarship covers tuition, fees, and other academic expenses—approximately $125,000 over the course of four years.
