About Posse

THE POSSE FOUNDATION identifies, recruits and trains urban public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential and sends them in Posses—supportive, multicultural teams of 10 students—to top colleges and universities across the country.

Most important, Posse Scholars persist and graduate at a rate of 90 percent and are active leaders on their campuses and in the workforce.

Posse is a national initiative with sites in Atlanta, the Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York and Washington, D.C.

Since 2000, POSSE CHICAGO Scholars have earned $188.2 million in merit-based leadership scholarships from our partner colleges and universities: Agnes Scott College, Connecticut College, Cornell University, Denison University, DePauw University, Middlebury College, Oberlin College, Pomona College, St. Olaf College, Trinity College, University of Michigan (STEM) and University of Wisconsin-Madison.
