701 Students Win College Scholarships Worth $118 Million

This year, a record 701 new Scholars were welcomed to the Posse community at Awards Ceremonies in nine cities. Selected from an extremely competitive pool of more than 16,000 high school students, Posse’s partner colleges and universities awarded new Scholars $118 million in four-year, full-tuition scholarships.

New Scholars will matriculate on campus in the fall after completing the eight-month Pre-Collegiate Training Program that will help prepare them for academic success and campus leadership.

Among the newly formed Posses are nearly 100 Scholars who will major in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM), the largest cohort of STEM Scholars in Posse history.

Since 1989, Posse has recruited 6,275 Scholars who have collectively won $806 million in leadership scholarships from the nation’s top institutions of higher education.
