To date, Scholars have won $23 million scholarship dollars from Posse Virtual Program partner colleges and universities.

The Posse Virtual Program launched in 2020 to select and train Posse Scholars using innovative digital platforms.

While selection and training is conducted online, Scholars are admitted with full-tuition scholarships and matriculate on campus alongside the general student body of our partner schools.

The new virtual platform recruits geographically diverse Posses from Charlotte, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Memphis, Newark, Philadelphia, Phoenix and select cities in Indiana, Minnesota and Virginia.

Note: The University of North Carolina School 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.
