Description of initiativeDescription of initiative
The Posse Foundation was founded in 1989 when a student said, "I wouldn't have dropped out of college if I had my posse with me." Since then, the Posse Foundation has identified, recruited and trained 8,480 public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential to become Posse Scholars. Posse's 56 partner colleges and universities have awarded those Scholars over $1 billion in four-year, full-tuition merit leadership scholarships. In 2002, UW-Madison became the first major public institution to join the Posse Foundation partnership. Their first posse, from Chicago, began classes at UW-Madison in the fall semester that year. A “posse” is a small, diverse group of talented students, selected and trained, to serve as a catalyst for increased individual and community development.
