The Posse Veterans Program is now accepting applicants for Fall 2022 college admission.
The Posse Veterans Program identifies, trains, and supports veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces interested in pursuing bachelor’s degrees at top colleges and universities.
Those accepted into the program attend college as part of a team of veterans—a Veterans Posse. Participants receive training prior to matriculating on campus and mentoring once enrolled. In addition, Posse partner colleges provide veterans in the program with supplemental funding to cover the full cost of tuition.
To be eligible to apply for the Posse Veterans Program, candidates must
Not have previously obtained a bachelor’s degree.
Have served at least 90 days of active duty since September 11, 2001, and have or will receive an honorable discharge.
Be able and willing to participate in a one-month pre-collegiate training program in New York City during the summer prior to matriculation.
All applicants will be asked to take either the SAT or ACT or report previous scores. However, scores are not a determining factor in Posse’s selection process.
After applying GI Bill, Yellow Ribbon, and other available funding from the government, Posse’s partner institutions guarantee that full tuition is covered for all four years—even when the government funding runs out.
Posse’s partner institutions’ financial aid policies will provide packages based on financial need that help cover the costs of room, board and other college or university fees.
