The Posse Veterans Program works with post-9/11 U.S. veterans who are leaders in their places of work, communities or families. Candidates must demonstrate strong academic potential and a desire to participate in a four-year program leading to a bachelor’s degree from a top-ranked college or university. To be eligible, candidates must: not have previously obtained a bachelor’s degree; have served at least 90 days of active duty since September 11, 2001, and have or will receive an honorable discharge; and be able and willing to participate in a one-month pre-collegiate training program in New York City during the summer prior to matriculation.
After applying GI Bill, Yellow Ribbon, and other available funding from the government, Posse’s partner institutions guarantee that full tuition is covered for all four years—even when the government funding runs out. Posse’s partner institutions’ financial aid policies will provide packages based on financial need that help cover the costs of room, board and other college or university fees. Dollar amounts for the scholarship will vary.
