To date, Boston Scholars have won $129.7 million scholarship dollars from Boston partner colleges and universities.


In 1999, a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) paved the way for Posse to establish Posse Boston, its first site outside of New York City. The Nellie Mae Foundation also provided critical fiscal support early on. Posse Boston was a test: Could the Posse program’s success in New York be replicated? After 19 years, Posse Boston is thriving, with an incredible nominating network, amazing partner institutions and impressive Scholars and alumni.

Posse is grateful to the teachers, counselors and community leaders of Boston, 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.
