31 BPS students earn Posse Scholarships

Thirty-one students from 13 Boston public high schools have earned a full tuition scholarship from the Posse Foundation. Posse Scholars also receive pre-college preparation and support during their college careers at six top-ranked liberal arts colleges across the country: Bryn Mawr College (Pennsylvania), Bucknell University (Pennsylvania), Centre College (Kentucky), Denison University (Ohio), Hamilton College (New York) and Union College (New York). They will join diverse teams of graduates from five other major U.S. cities at these colleges to help promote academic excellence and cross-cultural communication on campus. Since 2000, 147 Boston Public Schools students have become Posse Scholars.
