Ten Washington University in St. Louis students were among the nearly 500 Stamps Scholars from 41 universities across the nation who attended the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation’s third national convention. The convention took place at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta in April.

Kailin Baechle, Camille Borders, Candace Borders, Alex Carsello, Allen Osgood, Karthik Rohatgi (not pictured), Grant Shillington, Jimmy Wang, Chase Wehrle and Alex Zdonczyk represented Washington University in a weekend designed to inspire the Stamps Scholars to actively make a difference in their communities. Rob Wild, PhD, associate vice chancellor for students, accompanied the university’s scholars.

The merit-based scholarship program rewards exceptional students who exemplify leadership, perseverance, scholarship, service and innovation.
