Selection Process

About 20,000 high school seniors apply for admission by the early action deadline each year; 325 of those will be selected as semifinalists in December (Georgia residents) and mid-January (non-GA residents). The semifinalist pool will participate in a virtual interview. All semifinalists will be asked to submit additional documentation, including a resume.

Around 100 finalists will be named in late January (GA residents) and early February (non-GA residents) and invited to participate in Scholars Weekend, a two-day on-campus event taking place March 11-12, 2022. A total of 40 Stamps President's Scholars will be named from that group.

Additionally, all finalists who attend Scholars Weekend will be guaranteed one of our two top merit awards: The Stamps President’s Scholarship or the Gold Scholarship
