Mission Statement

The Posse Foundation, a dynamic youth leadership development and scholarship program, identifies, recruits and selects student leaders from public high schools to form multicultural teams called "Posses." These teams are then prepared, through an intensive Pre-Collegiate Training Program, for enrollment at top universities nationwide, to pursue their academics and to help promote cross-cultural communication on campus. The Posse Program has demonstrated great success since its inception in 1989, placing over 4,200 students at top colleges and universities. Posse Scholars have won over $480 million in scholarships from Posse partner universities and are persisting and graduating at a rate of 90% -- far higher than the national average.

Description

A Posse is a multicultural team made up of ten students. It acts as a traveling support system to ensure that each Posse Scholar succeeds and graduates from college. Posse Scholars receive four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships from Posse partner colleges and universities.
