The University of Missouri is one of just 36 schools across the United States and into the United Kingdom that partners with the Stamps Scholars Program on a premier scholarship. Mizzou has collaborated with the program since 2016, offering Tigers a full four-year scholarship, covering up to the total estimated cost of attendance (including housing), plus an additional $16,000 enrichment fund for students to use throughout their time at MU.
Mizzou has welcomed more than 30 Scholars since the partnership began – and will bring in its largest cohort this fall. Eight students will join the incredible Stamps community that MU has built.
“We are incredibly proud of the relationship we have built with the Stamps Scholars Program,” said Honors College Dean Catherine Rymph. “This scholarship allows our students to explore their scholarly and research passions and pursue leadership and service interests, as well as build vital networks throughout their time at MU. We are thrilled to welcome our largest class this fall and excited to see where their journeys take them.”
Scholars must be enrolled in the Honors College for all four years, working toward the completion of the Honors certificate. Scholars have a dedicated mentor, contact with campus leadership, alumni networking opportunities and funding for study abroad, too. Each student is connected with undergraduate research as well, working with their mentor to find a project that fits their interests.
This year’s cohort will be pursuing a variety of degrees at Mizzou, including the first MU Scholar to be part of the College of Education and Human Development.
“It is exciting to have a group of Scholars with such diverse interest areas,” Rymph said. “It gives our students the opportunity to truly become broadly educated as they learn so much from each other. Stamps Scholars often graduate with multiple majors, minors and certificates because their interests and talents take them in so many directions.”
