The first step of the Stamps application process is to choose one of 36 partner colleges, and I’ll show you some tips and tricks that might narrow down the list.
Recommended Colleges for Internationals
Among the 36 partner colleges, I’m going to list the universities that require the bare minimum for its application requirements, which is the admissions application with automatic consideration.
International applicants can apply to William & Mary, Elizabethtown College, Barry University, LSU, Oberlin College, University of Georgia, University of Illinois, University of Miami, University of Michigan, University of Notre Dame, University of Southern California, University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest University.
In addition, international applicants can also apply to Tulane University, University of Arizona, Frost School of Music, University of Mississippi, and University of Missouri, but you need to admit a separate scholarship application in addition to your admissions application.

In this section, the colleges listed here are open to US Citizens and Permanent Residents, and for some colleges, the eligibility requirements are even more strict!
Some universities need the applicant to reside in their state, and others even require the applicant to attend the college for two years before applying for Stamps Scholarship.
The colleges that do not accept international students are Georgia Tech, Mercer University, Purdue University, West Point, US Naval Academy, University of Oregon, University of South Carolina, and University of Texas at Austin.
