2015 Stamps Scholarship Recipients

The LSU Roger Hadfield Ogden Honors College announced today that it has doubled the number of Stamps Scholarships available to LSU students from five to 10. With this announcement, LSU joins a select group of universities in the country with a total of 10 Stamps Scholarships available per year to its incoming freshman class. Recipients of the scholarship—LSU’s most generous—receive the full cost of attendance for four years, plus a potential $14,000 for enrichment experiences.

The Stamps Family Charitable Foundation will fund the scholarships with matching funds from LSU.

“It’s only been four years, but the Stamps Scholars on LSU’s campus are already making a difference in the Honors College, in their labs, residence halls, classrooms and numerous student organizations,” said Ogden Honors College Dean Jonathan Earle. “The prospect of having 40 of these top students—who literally could go anywhere in the country—in our College warms a dean’s heart.”

“It’s great to see LSU expand the opportunities for top students,” noted Roe Stamps, who founded the Stamps Scholarships program with his wife Penny in 2006.  “We’re looking forward to welcoming more outstanding young people into the Stamps and LSU communities.”

Stamps Scholars are chosen from the pool of students admitted to the Ogden Honors College and are invited to apply by the Financial Aid and Scholarships department in LSU’s Office of Enrollment Management.

Stamps Scholars have access to the full range of resources offered by the Ogden Honors College Office of Fellowship Advising and the expertise of its faculty and staff. Scholars are encouraged to explore unique educational opportunities and are directed to resources that help cultivate intellectual distinction; initiative and commitment to service; leadership; global knowledge; and career exploration.

The Ogden Honors College Office of Fellowship Advising advises current students and recent graduates from all colleges at LSU as they apply for prestigious national and international fellowships, such as the Udall, Truman, Rhodes, Marshall, Gates, Mitchell, Soros and Goldwater awards. Students interested in applying for these and other scholarships should contact fellowships@lsu.edu.

The Stamps Family Charitable Foundation partners with more than 35 universities and colleges in the United States to provide merit scholarship to exceptional young people. Its objective is to help the young leaders of today and tomorrow make meaningful advances towards their lifetime goals during their college years.

The Ogden Honors College is a vibrant, diverse and prestigious community located at the heart of LSU. The Ogden Honors College provides students with a curriculum of rigorous seminar classes, as well as opportunities for undergraduate research, culminating in the Honors Thesis. Its focus on community service, study abroad, internships and independent research helps today’s high-achieving students become tomorrow’s leaders.
