Stamps Scholars National Convention

To encourage learning and collaboration among the national network of Stamps Scholars, the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation sponsors a convention every two years. During this remarkable weekend event, scholars come together to learn from business, non-profit and university thought leaders to share ideas and present the results of their ongoing research activities.

The Stamps Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2019 Stamps Scholars National Convention (SSNC19), typically held in the spring every two years, will be held in Atlanta, GA, at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

The convention held at Georgia Tech this past April was very successful and the Stamps Foundation has invited Georgia Tech to host the event again. “Georgia Tech is honored by this invitation to serve as the host for the 2019 Stamps Scholars Convention. We look forward to working together with the Foundation and our partner institutions to help achieve the bold vision of Roe and Penny Stamps,” said President G. P. “Bud” Peterson. “We consider it a privilege to work with Stamps Scholars from across the nation, the Stamps Foundation and our partner institutions.”

As part of the process, the Foundation will engage partner institutions in the planning and execution of the various phases of the convention to tap into the creative capital of the national network.

The 2017 convention included approximately 700 students from 40 partner colleges and universities around the country. During the weekend, Scholars had the opportunity to learn from some of the country’s most renowned leaders, including Teach for America Chief Executive Officer Elisa Villanueva-Beard, and former Georgia Tech President and Secretary Emeritus of the Smithsonian Institution G. Wayne Clough.
