To date, New Orleans Scholars have won $100 million scholarship dollars from New Orleans partner colleges and universities.


The crisis that followed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina prompted Posse’s expansion to New Orleans. At the Posse Gala in 2010, the Foundation raised funds to establish the site, which launched the following year with additional funding from The Edward G. Schlieder Educational Foundation.

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