Posse’s partner colleges and universities have selected 746 Scholars for the Class of 2022, awarding them $143.5 million in full-tuition leadership scholarships.

The newest class includes two inaugural cohorts: Lehigh University selected its first Posse from the Bay Area, and the University of Virginia, which already recruits Posses from Houston, selected its first group of U.S. veterans as the newest partner of the Posse Veterans Program.
