To date, New York Scholars have won $422.5 million scholarship dollars from New York partner colleges and universities.

History

New York is the birthplace of The Posse Foundation thanks to one student who said, “I never would’ve dropped out of college if I’d had my posse with me.” A generous grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation made Posse possible. Since then, Posse has grown into a national movement, with New York as its largest recruiting city.

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

Note: California Institute of the Arts recruits only students interested in majoring in the arts. As candidates advance through the selection process, an audition or portfolio will be required.
