The Posse Foundation launched its veterans initiative in 2012 in an effort to increase the rates at which veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces attend and graduate from selective colleges and universities. Posse Veterans Program partner institutions will supplement available GI Bill® and Yellow Ribbon funding to guarantee full tuition for every veteran student selected.
The Posse Foundation plans to expand the Veterans Program to include a total of 12 top colleges and universities as partners over the next five years. Each Posse veteran will attend college as part of a multicultural team–a Posse–of 10 veterans and will receive support prior to matriculating on campus and mentoring once enrolled.
