Stamps Scholarship

Top Merit-Based Scholarship

***The scholarship competition for the 2021-2022 academic year is now open. 

Since 2012, LSU has awarded the Stamps Scholarship through the support of benefactor E. Roe Stamps IV, which provides merit scholarships to the brightest and most outstanding undergraduate freshmen admitted to Louisiana State University. This elite award offers a full cost of attendance for four years, as well as an unprecedented level of funding for enrichment experiences. Stamps Scholars are directed to resources that will help cultivate each scholar's intellectual distinction, initiative, and commitment to service, leadership, global knowledge, and career exploration.


Prospective freshmen, with a strong record of high academic achievement, leadership, and service, are nominated for consideration through the admissions process. Prospective students must apply to the university through the Common Application by the scholarship priority deadline, December 15, to be considered. The Office of Enrollment Management, in consultation with the Ogden Honors College, considers applications and selects students to advance to the scholarship competition.


Recipients will receive the following:

  • Full cost of attendance for four years (covers tuition, fees, room & board, books, supplies, etc.)
    • Louisiana resident value: approx. $33,000 per year
    • Non-Louisiana resident value: approx. $50,000 per year
  • A potential $14,000 for enrichment experiences
  • The opportunity to earn up to an additional $1,550 per year by participating in the President's Future Leaders in Research Program
  • A one-time use $1,100 laptop stipend


To retain the award from year to year, students must remain in good standing with the Honors College and satisfactory progress toward College Honors is required.
