Stamps Ensemble Scholarship Award Details

The Stamps Ensemble Scholarship covers the cost of tuition and fees, an on-campus double room in a University of Miami residential college, and a meal plan of 19 meals per week for up to four academic years (eight consecutive semesters). For students who opt to live somewhere other than a UM residential college, the appropriate cost of attendance will be assigned based on the housing choice and the award will include an amount equal to the standard housing and meal allowance.

The cost of attendance is published annually on the University of Miami Office of Student Financial Assistance and Employment website, finaid.miami.edu. This scholarship is funded from University merit aid, University need-based aid, federal need-based aid, State of Florida merit and/or need-based aid, and from the Stamps Family Foundation. Half of the award will be applied toward fall semester expenses; the other half will be applied toward spring semester expenses. The scholarship is not available in the summer term.
