UW-Madison Posse Program

Posse identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by traditional college selection processes. Focusing on four major cities, New York, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and Chicago, Posse extends to these students the opportunity to pursue personal and academic excellence by placing them in supportive, diverse teams—Posses—of 10 students. Posse partner colleges and universities award Posse Scholars four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships.
