To date, Chicago Scholars have won $236 million scholarship dollars from Chicago partner colleges and universities.


Tim Ubben, now an emeritus member of the Posse Board of Directors and a graduate and trustee of DePauw University, wanted to bring Posse to the Windy City. He organized a generous group of five benefactors to establish the founding fund for Posse Chicago. The site opened its doors in 2000 with DePauw University, Denison University and Carleton College as its first partner schools.

Posse thanks Tim for his incredible generosity and vision.

We are grateful to the teachers, counselors and community leaders of Chicago, 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.
