Of Scholar Success

We think the face of leadership could be 5,544 Times fresher

90% persistence and graduation rate

The Posse Foundation has identified, recruited and trained 5,544 public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential to become Posse Scholars. Since 1989, these students—many of whom might have been overlooked by traditional college selection processes—have been receiving four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships from Posse’s partner institutions of higher education. Most important, Posse Scholars persist and graduate at a rate of 90 percent and make a visible difference on campus and throughout their professional careers.

$687 million in scholarships has been awarded by our college + university partners
