Posse Scholars begin their journey to Berkeley in their senior year of high school in Los Angeles. Many of the more than 3,000 nominated students faced challenging life situations from an early age and stepped into unexpected roles of leadership. Coming through the other side, they developed an intrinsic drive that goes beyond their own success but also helping their family, fellow students, and community thrive as well. Fifty-five universities and colleges across the nation participate in the Posse Scholars program, accepting up to ten scholars in each cohort. Learn more about the Posse Foundation.
