The Posse Foundation
30th Anniversary Collection
Posse started in 1989 because of one student who said, “I never would’ve dropped out of college if I’d had my posse with me.” The Posse Foundation identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by traditional college selection processes. The Foundation extends to these students the opportunity to pursue personal and academic excellence by placing them in supportive, multi-cultural teams—Posses—of 10 students. The Foundation’s partner colleges and universities award Posse Scholars full‑tuition leadership scholarships.
