Stamps Scholars at the University of Missouri receive a four-year, full scholarship (covering up to the total estimated cost of attendance), plus an additional $16,000 academic and leadership development fund. Mizzou Stamps Scholars will also enroll in the Honors College for all four years, work toward completion of the Honors Certificate and participate in the rigorous yet rewarding, academic and co-curricular programming of the College and University. To be eligible to apply, a student must have at least a 1420 SAT (or 32 ACT), hold at least a 3.5 core GPA, and have applied to MU and the Honors College by December 1. The program is open to students of any nationality and who are enrolled in any accredited US or international high school. An application for the Stamps Scholars consists of three essays, two letters of recommendation, and a résumé (which will be added to a student’s academic record, already on file). The top 100 selected candidates participate in an 8-minute video interview process in late December. Up to 28 semi-finalists will be required to attend a two and a half-day, on-campus event.
