2021 Stamps Scholars Look Forward to the Fall

Five students will join the Stamps Scholars Program at Pitt this fall. The prestigious scholarship is awarded to incoming undergraduates from the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 

With the support of E. Roe Stamps, his late wife Penny and the University of Pittsburgh, the Stamps Scholarship is valued in excess of $150,000 over four years, coving full tuition, mandatory fees, room and board, an allowance for books and supplies and enrichment funds for research and other co-curricular opportunities. 

New awardee Kayla Moitui said, “The Stamps Scholarship is more than just a scholarship: it’s a blessing and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. All of the cohorts have been so welcoming, and I cannot wait to meet my cohort in person. I am excited to contribute toward making the world a better and more promising place through research, advocacy and volunteer work.” 

The 2021 Stamps Scholars are: 

  • Melina Bradley of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • Jake Lorenz of West Chester, Pennsylvania
  • Kayla Moitui of Easton, Pennsylvania
  • Niosha Parvizi of Gladwyne, Pennsylvania
  • Ramsey Smith of Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania
