Louisville Student Awarded Prestigious Stamps Scholarship
Dupont Manual High School’s 2021 Valedictorian Attending Northeastern University, 9/14/2021 - ATLANTA, GEORGIA – August, 2021 – Alana Fields, recent Valedictorian of DuPont Manual High School’s 2021 graduating class, has been awarded the prestigious Stamps Scholarship. Ms. Fields is attending Northeastern University, where she plans to study business and communications, while also playing field hockey at the collegiate level.

Selected from over 320,000 applications, Ms. Fields and over 200 other recipients nationwide were chosen via rigorous processes by their universities and colleges for their academic excellence, leadership experience, dedication to service, and exceptional character. For these students, the total value of their Stamps Scholarships will be worth up to approximately $36.4 million, with each attending one of 37 partner universities across the US and the UK.

At most partner universities, the Stamps Scholarship covers up to the total estimated cost of attendance for four years of undergraduate study and also includes enrichment funds that Scholars can use for academic and professional development, ranging from study abroad to internships to independent research.

Perhaps the most special benefit of the Stamps Scholarship is the opportunity for Scholars to network with an international community of peers and alumni - from regional conferences and informal meet-ups hosted by partner schools, to the biennial Stamps Scholars National Convention.

Continued engagement from the Stamps alumni network beyond graduation offers many benefits to current Scholars, including one-on-one mentorships with alumni who are professionals in the workforce, as well as virtual panels and Q&A sessions regarding graduate programs, career building, and fellowships.

Ms. Fields is a Louisville native with deep involvement in her community, including service through the National Honor Society as a volunteer at Louisville Grows, New Directions Housing Corporation, and Educational Justice Activists. She was also a member of the Muhammad Ali Center Council of Students. In addition to receiving the Stamps Scholarship, Ms. Fields was also awarded The Foot Locker Athletic Scholarship, Northeastern Honors Merit Scholarship, Northeastern Athletic Field Hockey Scholarship, and Rachel Baker Memorial Scholarship.
