Attend this information session with The Posse Foundation Veterans Program to learn more about how they can support you in getting a bachelor’s degree, tuition free, from a top-ranked college or university! Food will be provided!
Posse started in 1989 because of one student who said,
“I NEVER WOULD HAVE DROPPED OUT OF COLLEGE IF I’D HAD MY POSSE WITH ME.”
That simple idea of sending a group (a posse) of students together to college became the basis for one of the most important college success and leadership development programs in the nation today.
The Posse Foundation announced its Veterans initiative in 2012 and began the program in partnership with Vassar College. Since then, the list of institutional partners has grown to include the University of Chicago, the University of Virginia, and Wesleyan University.
The Posse Veterans Program identifies and supports post-9/11 veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces who have tremendous leadership and academic potential. Posse looks for veterans interested in pursuing bachelor’s degrees at top colleges and universities who are excited to be active, engaged leaders in those campus communities. By creating cohorts of veterans, preparing them for the college experience, and supporting them through graduation, the Posse Veterans Program ensures veterans’ success in college and, ultimately, in the workforce.
