    The Foundation Fellows is a VERY competitive Stamps foundation scholarship. Nope, NOT automatic.

    If the student is interested in an engineering major, check if the desired major exists at each school (some do not have any engineering majors).

    Also, some of the scholarships have changed (in recent years, changes have generally been less favorable to the student, as in scholarships getting smaller, requiring higher thresholds, changing from automatic to competitive, no longer being offered at all, etc.). Check on school web sites to see what the current offerings are.
