The Posse Scholars Program is a four year scholarship program that identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by traditional college selection processes. Posse extends to these students the opportunity to pursue personal and academic excellence by placing them in supportive, multicultural teams—Posses—of 10 students. Posse partner colleges and universities, like Hamilton, award Posse Scholars four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships. Posse program partners include 39 top-tier colleges and universities, including Middlebury, Oberlin, the University of Pennsylvania and Carleton College. Since its founding in 1989, more than $402 million in leadership scholarships have been awarded by Posse partner colleges to 3,638 Posse students. Miami is Posse’s newest program site, joining sites in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C.

Hamilton began its partnership with Posse in 2001 when the college enrolled its first posse of students from the Boston area. The college expanded its partnership with the Posse Foundation fall of 2012 when it enrolled 10 students from Miami in the class of 2014. Hamilton celebrated its 10 year anniversary of its partnership with the Posse Foundation as of March 31, 2011.
