To date, Houston Scholars have won $92 million scholarship dollars from Houston partner colleges and universities.


The generosity of The Brown Family Foundation, Inc., The Houston Endowment, Inc. and The Kresge Foundation allowed Posse to expand to Houston. We were eager to bring the Posse movement to Texas and to a city with one of the country’s largest public school systems.

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