University Welcomes Class of 2020 Stamps Scholars

The University of Miami welcomes nine new Stamps Scholars from across the country for the 2016-2017 academic year. Stamps Scholars are chosen for their strong leadership potential, academic merit, outstanding talent, and exceptional character.

The Stamps Family Charitable Foundation supports promising students who are eager to make their contributions to the world and have the work ethic to make their dreams a reality. The University’s most prestigious undergraduate merit awards, Stamps Scholarships are funded by the generosity of Penny and Roe Stamps through the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation and UM.

“Stamps Scholars have the opportunity to engage in extraordinary educational experiences at the University of Miami and around the world,” said UM President Julio Frenk. “We are grateful to Penny and Roe Stamps for their generous support of these future leaders.”

The Stamps Scholarship covers all expenses for four years of undergraduate study and provides additional funds to support enrichment opportunities. Other benefits include: participation in a national day of service; access to a growing network of scholars and alumni; and opportunities to attend biennial conventions, where scholars are able to network with one another and learn from recognized leaders.

Four incoming freshmen have been selected as Stamps Scholars across a range of disciplines. They include: Joshua Kleinman, Naperville, Ill., international studies; Alanna Muldowney, Ormond Beach, Fla., electrical engineering; Ezra Remer, New Orleans, La., motion pictures; and Rebecca Wagner, Menomonee Falls, Wis., marine science and computer science.

“I am forever grateful for the generosity of the Stamps family for giving me a life-changing opportunity to pursue my dreams and attend the University of Miami. I am so very excited to become a member of the Stamps Scholars community and to connect with other passionate, like-minded students,” said Muldowney. More...
