APS ‘posse’ of students earns lucrative scholarships, begins intensive pre-college training


Congratulations to the 12 APS seniors recently named 2013 Posse Scholars, each earning a four-year, full-tuition scholarship worth approximately $100,000. The awards come from The Posse Foundation, which recruits students who demonstrate extraordinary academic and leadership potential and sends them to college in supportive, multicultural teams called “posses.”

Named in December, Posse Scholars will spend the rest of their senior year and the summer – January to August – participating in intensive college-preparatory training sessions every week. Then, throughout their college years, scholars will continue to receive support and development in the form of mentoring, retreats, internships and other meaningful activities. The Posse Foundation administers a rigorous college access and youth leadership program that boasts a college graduation rate of 90 percent. Again, best wishes and congratulations to the 2013 Posse Scholars across APS!
