Posse Scholarship

by Area Talk

The Posse Scholarship is a highly selective full tuition scholarship program that recruits and sends talented high school students to top-tier universities. Since 1989, the Posse Foundation has sent thousands of promising students to college who have otherwise been overlooked by the traditional college admissions process, and over 10,000 have graduated with a degree to date. Posse Scholars have a 94% college graduation rate and are committed to giving back to the communities they come from by using the skills they have gained.


The POSSE Scholarship covers full tuition and other related expenses such as student fees, room, board and books at select partner universities. Selected scholars receive continuous support from the foundation throughout and after their college experience including mentoring, counseling, workshops and career opportunities.
