The Posse Foundation
The Posse Foundation believes in sending groups of students to college together to act as a support system for one another. Working with high schools and community-based organizations, Posse identifies public high school students who might be missed by traditional admissions criteria, but who can excel at selective colleges and universities. The students are selected and placed in supportive multicultural teams (posses) of ten.
Each posse partners with a college or university, which awards a four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarship to each student. Students participate in pre-collegiate training, campus mentoring and career services. Making visible differences on their campuses, participants graduate from college at a rate of 90% and continue on to successful futures. Collectively, they represent a growing and diverse leadership network.
