To date, D.C. Scholars have won $112.7 million scholarship dollars from D.C. partner colleges and universities.


A generous grant from The Sallie Mae Fund made Posse D.C. possible. Posse was excited to expand to the nation’s capital, knowing that the public school system in D.C. was sure to hold many of our country’s future trailblazers.

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