University of Michigan

The Stamps Scholarship was offered at the University of Michigan between 2006 and 2020, during which time it was the most generous merit-based award at the institution, covering the full cost of tuition, plus additional enrichment funding for study abroad, research, and internships. Though U-M is not accepting applications at this time, current U-M Stamps Scholars receive the aforementioned benefits, are members of the U-M Stamps Scholar Society student organization, and have access to the national Stamps Scholars network of students and alumni.

Scholars were selected based on academic achievement, evidence of leadership, innovation, and commitment to the students’ communities.

In addition to their support of the Stamps Scholarship, philanthropists Penny W. Stamps (BSDes ’66, TeachCert ’66) and E. Roe Stamps are the most generous donors ever to the U-M Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, named for her in September 2012. The couple’s support of the school has established merit scholarships and launched such initiatives as the Penny W. Stamps Distinguished Speaker Series, bringing creative thinkers to campus and the community from around the world.
