The Posse Foundation launched its veterans initiative in 2012 in an effort to increase the rates at which veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces attend and graduate from selective colleges and universities.
What is the Posse Veterans Program? Cohorts – Posses – of 10 veterans attend top colleges together to pursue bachelor’s degrees.
Comprehensive training from Posse prepares veterans for the college experience and support continues on campus through graduation.
Posse offers internship opportunities, career coaching and connects Veterans Posse Scholars to a large professional network so they are ready to take on leadership positions in the workforce.
Nominations for the Summer 2019 application process are currently being accepted.
The Posse Veterans Program is an initiative of The Posse Foundation, which was founded in 1989. It is a national college access and leadership program for post-9/11 U.S. veterans. Selected veteran Scholars are placed in teams of 10 and are guaranteed four years of full tuition funding after GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon benefits are applied. Posse Scholars graduate at a rate of 90% and have earned over $1 billion in scholarships. The Posse Veterans Program partners with Vassar College, Wesleyan University, the University of Virginia, and the University of Chicago.
