TheNominationProcess

Students participate in the Dynamic Assessment Process

Students participate in the Dynamic Assessment Process, Posse's unique nomination program.

Know an amazing student? We want to know them, too.

Are you part of a high school or a community-based organization that works with high school juniors/seniors in Atlanta, the Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York or Washington, D.C.? If you’re registered with Posse, you can nominate high school students as early as their second semester junior year.

Depending on Posse location/city, nomination timelines and deadlines may vary. Note that the Posse Veterans Program and The Posse STEM Program nomination processes are conducted separately. Be sure to contact your local Posse office for details at the beginning of every year.

Each Posse Scholar wins a full-tuition scholarship to attend one of Posse’s partner colleges or universities.

Requirements

To be eligible, a high school senior must:

  • Be nominated by their high school or a community-based organization
  • Be in the first term of their senior year in high school
  • Demonstrate leadership within their high school, community or family
  • Demonstrate academic potential
  • Apply on time; depending on the Posse city, nominations are accepted between the spring and early August before each new school year begins

The Posse Scholarship is neither a minority nor a need-based scholarship. It is open to students of all backgrounds.

Posse seeks students who are:

  • Leaders in their high schools and communities
  • Committed to their education and demonstrate academic potential
  • Interested in teamwork and diversity
  • Positive, motivated, talented, ambitious young people
