Stamps Scholarship and Nordenberg Scholars Program
As one of only 43 schools in the country, the University of Pittsburgh is proud to partner with the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation to offer a full tuition, room and board scholarship to five incoming freshman from Pennsylvania.

Each student will each receive a full-tuition scholarship for four years (or eight terms) which may include one international experience as well as assistance with securing internship positions throughout their time at Pitt.
