Letter from the Director:

Dear Potential Scholar,  

The Lombardi and Stamps Scholarships are the premier undergraduate scholarship programs offered by the University of Florida.  Each year a blue-ribbon panel of distinguished UF faculty select eleven students for these awards from a pool of over 150 nominations from Florida high schools.  As a member of the committee, I am amazed every year by the quality of the applicants.  While choosing the recipients is challenging, it is among the most enjoyable aspects of my job as director of the Honors Program.  I know my fellow committee members feel the same way and we always look forward to interview Saturday.

The financial benefits of the scholarships are obvious, but as you peruse the information on this site the real value of being a Lombardi or Stamps Scholar will become apparent.  The relationships you will develop with your fellow scholars and the experiences you will share are life-altering.  These intangibles are what will stick with you forever.  

Everyone knows it’s great to be a Florida Gator.  As a Lombardi or Stamps Scholar, it’s even greater.   

Dr. Kevin Knudson
Director, UF Honors Program

Responsibilities of Scholars

Lombardi and Stamps Scholars will make satisfactory progress towards their degree and sustain high academic and personal standards throughout their time at UF. Upon their selection, they will each plan with an academic advisor how to best take advantage of the opportunities that UF provides for research, travel and experiential learning. To remain in good standing Scholars must participate fully in the summer enrichment programs and all other aspects of the program.

Benefits

Scholars receive $2,700 each fall and spring semester for 8 semesters or until the Bachelor's Degree is awarded (whichever comes first); four summer enrichment programs, which include two international study trips, leadership training, and a community service retreat, are also funded by the scholarship. Florida's Bright Futures Program will cover a portion of tuition.

Scholars will have many opportunities to interact with visiting faculty and speakers. For four summers, beginning with the summer before their freshman year, scholars will participate in study abroad, internships, academic research or other enrichment programs, designed to enhance student leadership and problem-solving skills, encourage service to the community, increase confidence and integrate classroom learning with real-world experience.
