Good Morning 11th grade Parents and Students,
Every year, The Posse Foundation works closely with high schools to recruit Posse Scholars. Each Posse Scholar wins a four-year, full-tuition scholarship to attend one of Posse’s partner colleges or universities. If you are interested in being nominated by your high school and demonstrate leadership and academic potential, please submit this scholarship application no later than Wednesday, June 9, 2021.
The preliminary round includes Da Vinci Communications staff reviewing your application and selecting this year’s nominees to send to The Posse Foundation. Once your nomination status has been received by The Posse Foundation, you will go through several rounds of interviews with Posse. Part of the interview process includes you ranking your top three colleges from their partner institutions and finding the right match for you. While The Posse Foundation does its best to find the best match, it is not guaranteed that you will be matched with your first-choice college. If selected as a Posse Scholar, you will be applying to one of the colleges listed below under their binding Early Decision agreement, which means you are committing to attend.
o Bucknell University – Lewisburg, Pennsylvania
o Dickinson College – Carlilse, Pennsylvania
o Hobart and William Smith Colleges – Geneva, New York
o Kalamazoo College – Kalamazoo, Michigan
o Middlebury College – Middlebury, Vermont
o Northwestern University – Evanston, Illinois
o Pepperdine University – Malibu, California
o Tulane University – New Orleans, Louisiana
