President's Scholarship Program
The Stamps President's Scholars Program is Georgia Tech's premier merit-based scholarship. Recipients are selected from the top applicants for admission to Georgia Tech based on demonstrated excellence in scholarship, leadership, progress, and service as described on the Stamps President's Scholars Program web page. From the applicant pool, students selected as semi-finalists submit a one-page resume before being interviewed. The top semi-finalists are named finalists and invited, with their parents, to campus for additional interviews and an information weekend in March.
Transfer students are not eligible for the four-year award. Recipients must be US Citizens, US Permanent Residents, or UK Citizens.
Each year, 40 incoming first-year students receive the Stamps President's Scholarship, which is renewable for up to four academic years or eight semesters, contingent upon honors-level performance and continued leadership development as evidenced by involvement in program, campus, and community activities. Scholarships are "full ride," including tuition and mandatory fees, room and board, books, and personal expenses. See the website below for more information on stipends.
To ensure consideration, a student must apply as an incoming first-year student, and submit the Georgia Tech Application for First-Year Admission, along with the application fee by the early action deadline of October 15th.
