To date, Los Angeles Scholars have won $249.4 million scholarship dollars from Los Angeles partner colleges and universities.


In order to make Posse a national movement, we knew it had to expand to the west coast. Thanks to the generosity of The Goldman Sachs Foundation, we were excited to launch Posse’s first Pacific coast site in Los Angeles, where it continues to thrive today.

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