Parents and Guardians,
The Barack Obama recognized Foundation—Posse—has visited Da Vinci Schools today and spoke Juniors about the opportunities they offer for students who are selected for their scholarship. The Posse Foundation prides itself with recognizing public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by traditional college processes. Posse offers these selected students the opportunity to pursue both academic and personal excellence by partnering with universities countrywide and awarding them with four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships. The Posse Foundation selects only 10 students per college in the Los Angeles area making the process extremely competitive.
In order to qualify for the scholarship, the student must fill out The Posse Foundation Application Nomination Form located in the office. All applications are due May 18th and students will find out if they are nominated during POLS week. Once nominated, the student will part-take in a three-part process, including large group and individual interviews. Posse staff and university partner administrators ultimately select a diverse group of 10 students for each college or university, thus forming a Posse. Please encourage your child to apply to the Posse Foundation.
