Release:

About 20,000 high school students apply for admission to the Georgia Institute of Technology. From this pool of applicants, 40 students are ultimately selected to participate in a prestigious scholarship program called the President’s Stamps Scholarship. This program covers the full cost of student attendance, including their tuition, fees, housing, meal plan, personal expenses, supplies for up to 8 semesters, and a laptop allowance. Colquitt County High School valedictorian and STAR student Case Gregory was named the recipient of the prestigious scholarship.

“I am excited about the community of scholars I will be joining,” Case said. “I will be surrounded by people who are passionate about learning and who want to make a difference in the world. I am also very lucky to have been surrounded by teachers and family members who have invested in me over the years, which resulted in me being selected for this program.

As part of the program, he will participate in a summer leadership program in Alaska hosted by Georgia Tech’s Outdoor Recreation Department. During his university years, he will also have access to several retreats fully funded by the program, national and international. These retreats focus on community development and cover service, social justice, scholarship and career development, as well as progress and reflection. According to the program website, the scholarship program is based on four pillars; scholarships, leadership, programs and services. Case is the first Colquitt County Fellow in the past decade according to Georgia Tech records.
