Posse Scholarship Reminder

Attention Class of 2022: Are you a future Posse scholar? Every year, Posse partner institutions award Posse Scholars four-year, full-tuition, merit-based scholarships to top colleges and universities (Bucknell University, Dickinson College, Hobart & Williams Smith Colleges, Kalamazoo College, Middlebury College, Northwestern University, Pepperdine University, Tulane University, University of Wisconsin, Madison).

If you would like DVS to consider you as a nominee for the Posse Scholarship, please complete the Posse Foundation Scholarship Application.  The application is due no later than Friday, June 4 at 3:30 pm. As a note, we are looking for thoughtfulness and meaning in your answers rather than the length of answer. 

We will notify those who are selected for nomination via email by June 8th.

If you have additional questions, please reach out to your respective counselor.
