Dear Prospective Scholars

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 200 nominations.  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. Mark Law
Director, UF Honors Program
