To date, Atlanta Scholars have won $133.6 million scholarship dollars from Atlanta partner colleges and universities.


A generous grant from The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation helped launch Posse Atlanta, the program’s fourth site. The Posse Foundation was eager to bring its dynamic programming to the Atlanta Public School system and the many promising students it serves.

Posse is grateful to the teachers, counselors and community leaders of Atlanta, who help us identify incredible high school students. We especially thank our partner colleges and universities for their investments in the program and belief in the promise of Posse Scholars.
