The Stamps Program At Elizabethtown College
Learn more about Stamps Scholars Activities
The Stamps Scholars Program supports a select group of Elizabethtown College students who have been awarded a four ‐ year full tuition scholarship on the basis of their potential as future national leaders. The Program exists to provide Stamps Scholars with an enriched undergraduate experience aimed at developing Scholars’ skills in four domains: creativity, leadership, scholarship, and service.Creativity
Stamps Scholars are naturally intellectually curious, and the Program will encourage Scholars to explore a variety of experiences, challenge themselves, take risks, and discover their own strengths, both in their curricular and co ‐ curricular experiences.
Stamps Scholars are poised to become the leaders of tomorrow. Scholars will participate in
Elizabethtown’s signature leadership development program, Called to Lead. Scholars will network with
leaders from among Elizabethtown College faculty and/or alumni and select their own personal mentor.
Stamps Scholars are high achievers, and they are expected to be outstanding scholars at the
undergraduate level. In addition to excelling in the classroom, Scholars will conduct independent artistic
and/or scholarly work. They are encouraged to share their work at professional conferences and
compete for national fellowships.
Stamps Scholars are expected to use their creative abilities, leadership skills, and scholarly knowledge to benefit the greater good. Scholars will work in collaboration with organizations in the community to create positive change.
What does it mean to be a Stamps Scholar?Stamps Scholars are expected to be active participants in the Program, fully engaging in enrichment experiences and seeking out opportunities to design their own enriching experiences.
Scholars must be in good standing with the Program to access their enrichment fund. Enrichment funds
will be administered by the Stamps advisor following requests made by the Scholars. Scholars are
expected to use some of their funds each year of their undergraduate experience.
