Support Posse

Man hugging womanThe Posse Foundation could not exist without the support of its partner colleges and universities. These institutions have awarded $1 billion in leadership scholarships to Posse scholars across the country.

The UW–Madison Posse program thrives with the support of a number of individuals who continue to make generous contributions to scholar success. Thanks to our donors, we have been able to fund study abroad programs, summer courses that assist with progress to graduation, and more.
