Dartmouth College sophomore Amy Hu, a Johns Creek resident, and Northview High School graduate, has been selected as a Dartmouth Stamps Scholar. Amy, an economics and computer science double major, will use the scholarship to conduct research on the U.S. adoption of a real-time payments system. “I plan to study how new financial technology can boost productivity and reduce the high costs and time lag of our current adoption system, which disproportionately affects low-income, unbanked households,” said Hu.
The Dartmouth Stamps Scholars Program was established in 2014 in partnership with the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation to recognize and reward exceptional students who exemplify leadership, perseverance, scholarship, service, and innovation. The most promising students are given an opportunity to design an experiential learning plan to build on or respond to what they’ve learned in their first few years at Dartmouth. The Dartmouth Stamps Scholars are part of a national network of Stamps Scholars located in 40 elite universities across the country.
Congrats Amy Hu!
