Eight PGCPS Students Awarded Posse Scholarships


Eight Prince George’s County Public Schools high school seniors have been named Posse Scholars and will receive four-year, full-tuition college scholarships from The Posse Foundation’s partnering schools. Next fall, Posse Scholars from across the nation will enter colleges and universities in multicultural groups of 10 known as “posses.” Throughout their college career, they will support each other and receive ongoing assistance from The Posse Foundation. Posse Scholars have a 90 percent college graduation rate and demonstrated potential to positively impact their professions. Each scholarship is worth approximately $140,000. More than 40 PGCPS students have received Posse scholarships since 2013.
