University of Chicago Becomes Posse Veterans Program Partner

Summer 2018 | National

This fall, the University of Chicago (UChicago) will recruit its first cohort of Scholars through the Posse Veterans Program. The inaugural class will matriculate on campus in fall 2019.

“UChicago is proud to partner with The Posse Foundation’s Veterans Program,” says Vice President and Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid James Nondorf. “As a community of diverse voices, viewpoints, and backgrounds, we know that future students from this program will add to the fabric of rigorous inquiry and discovery. We cannot wait to give them a big UChicago welcome!”

“UChicago is proud to partner with Posse's Veterans Program.”

UChicago is an urban research university located in neighborhoods spanning the South Side of Chicago, Illinois. Founded by John D. Rockefeller in 1890, the institution encompasses an undergraduate college of just under 6,000 students, and multiple graduate schools.

UChicago is the fifth school to partner with the Posse Veterans Program, joining Dartmouth College, Wesleyan University, Vassar College and the University of Virginia. The Posse Veterans Program was founded in 2013.

The University of Chicago Booth School of Business has been a Posse Graduate School Affiliate since 2015, offering one full-tuition scholarship each year to a Posse alumna/us admitted to the school’s MBA program, and one scholarship to an undergraduate Posse Scholar accepted into the Chicago Booth Summer Business Scholars Program.

“Our nation’s post-9/11 veterans represent a unique pipeline of talent with tremendous leadership potential,” says Posse President and Founder Deborah Bial. “We look forward to working with President Zimmer and his team and this outstanding university. We are very proud to include the University of Chicago as a partner.”
