The MU Honors College recently welcomed six freshmen to its Stamps Scholars program — celebrating its first year with scholars in each class, freshman through senior.
The six new scholars represent some of the nation’s top students, demonstrating academic merit, strong leadership potential and exceptional character. Selected from more than 418 total applicants, the scholars underwent three rounds of application including initial essays, a virtual interview and an in-person semifinalist weekend.
“The Stamps Scholars program allows us to select from among the most talented students in the nation,” said J.D. Bowers, director of the Honors College. “We are fortunate to have these students come to Mizzou, contribute to our campus and community and to inject our college with intellectual vitality and ambitions.”
This semester’s students are:
- Bryson Ferguson – McKinney, Texas
- Sarah George – Boulder, Colorado
- Gabriela Kauffman – Lohman, Missouri
- Samuel Peterson – Joplin, Missouri
- Maddie Reiser – Pleasant Plains, Illinois
- Caroline Topham – Louisville, Kentucky
