We are pleased to announce that this year’s winner is the STAMPS Program, led by Dr. Jeffrey Patton and Dr. Lynn Sametz of the Geography, Environment, and Sustainability Department.

“Jeff Patton and Lynn Sametz have worked tirelessly for many years to increase underrepresented groups in STEM fields, most notably through NSF-funded STAMPS (Science, Technology and Math Preparation Scholarships) Program, which offers scholarships of up to $4,000 per year to academically talented students in the sciences, specifically targeting high achieving students with financial need. STAMPS, which has been funded twice by NSF over 12 years, has provided $1.2 million in scholarships and builds cohorts of students that represent a diverse group of students.”
