Founded in 1989, Posse identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by traditional college selection processes. Posse extends to these students the opportunity to pursue personal and academic excellence by placing them in supportive, multicultural teams – Posses – of 10 students. Posse partner colleges and universities award Posse Scholars four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships.

For 26 years, Posse partner colleges and universities have welcomed Posse Scholars onto their campuses. They have awarded an incredible $806 million in leadership scholarships to these young people and have seen their success not only as leaders on campus, but in these students’ 90 percent persistence and graduation rate.

They believe in the intelligence, talent and dreams of young people who might not always show up on their radar screens, and are giving them a chance to excel.
