While Stamps President’s Scholars do receive a full-ride scholarship, the four-year, participatory program also develops them and enriches their lives so that they can pay forward to society the remarkable fruits of their labors. It includes:
- A full-ride scholarship covering tuition, mandatory fees, housing, meal plan, books, and academic supplies, personal expenses, and a stipend during freshman year for a laptop.
- $15,000 enrichment funding for pillar-based international experiences, unpaid internships, unpaid research, conferences, etc.
- Mentoring for each cohort by two dedicated professors known as “faculty guides.”
- Annual cohort retreats including one outdoor leadership Tech Trek. Some of the trek destinations have included breathtaking areas of Alaska, Belize, Canada, Croatia, Iceland, the Minnesota Boundary Waters, and Scotland.
- Student- and professor-planned Academic Search for Knowledge (ASK) Expeditions including outdoor adventure and urban study. Recent destinations include the Balkans, Argentina, Yosemite/California, and South Africa.
- One-on-one mentoring from professors, program staff, alumni, and current scholars.
- Access to special speakers, employment opportunities, dinners, and receptions.
- The complete Georgia Tech and Atlanta experience. From arts to athletics, music to museums, and technology to theater, Atlanta and Georgia Tech together afford opportunities that can only come when a traditional campus is in the heart of an international city.
