A Commitment to Leadership + Diversity
The Posse Foundation thanks its partner colleges and universities for their continued support of The Posse Program. These institutions have awarded millions of dollars in leadership scholarships to Posse Scholars across the country as part of their ongoing efforts to promote equity in higher education while honoring the highest academic standards. Their investment in Posse is a testament to the belief that the next generation of leaders should embody the diverse interests, backgrounds and perspectives that so uniquely characterize the American experience.

Expanding the Pool
Posse recognizes the considerable challenges facing selective colleges and universities that are committed to broadening educational access for underrepresented groups. Limited resources force institutions to compete for diverse students from a finite pool of applicants who meet the traditional admissions criteria. Posse offers its partner colleges and universities a holistic, cost-effective way to supplement their regular admissions processes by identifying top-notch students from diverse backgrounds who might otherwise be overlooked. Through partnerships with Posse, these schools are expanding the pool of qualified applicants and, in so doing, helping to realize our most cherished educational ideals.
Posse is partnered with some of the best colleges and universities in the nation.
