The Jeff Ubben Posse Fellows Program, now in its second year, has selected five high-achieving Posse Scholar sophomores for prestigious summer internships. The program grants awardees close access to industry leaders and includes a $10,000 stipend.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Massachusetts Chief District Court Judge Patti Saris, Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital CEO Dr. Steven Corwin and Metropolitan Museum of Art CEO Daniel Weiss will each mentor a Scholar this summer as part of the program.
