|For 30 years, The Posse Foundation has identified, recruited and trained young people from diverse backgrounds with extraordinary potential who might otherwise be missed by elite schools. The program places scholars in supportive, multicultural groups of 10 students – Posses. With mentoring and full-tuition leadership scholarships from partnering colleges, Posse Scholars graduate at a rate of 90 percent. As alumni, they are well prepared and positioned for success. Together with the nation’s top institutions of higher education, Posse is building a powerful new leadership network — one that better represents the voices of all Americans.
