The Posse Foundation identifies students with proven leadership ability and the motivation to succeed; qualities which are developed by C5 youth during their five-year intensive and intentional leadership development process.

Since 1989 Posse has sent nearly 4,000 students to colleges throughout the United States with more than $400M in scholarships. Their mission is to:

Expand the pool from which top colleges and universities can recruit outstanding young leaders from diverse backgrounds

Help these institutions build more interactive campus environments so that they can be more welcoming for people from all backgrounds

Ensure that Posse Scholars persist in their academic studies and graduate so they can take on leadership positions in the workforce

We wish these scholars, as well as all of our graduates – 95% of which go on to college – all the best as they prepare for leadership roles in college, work and their community.
