Posse Scholars


The Posse Scholars program provides students chosen by the Posse Foundation for exceptional leadership skills with intesnive faculty mentoring and small group interactions. Advantages of the program include a tightly-knit national network of Posse graduates, tailored career and academic advising, and opportunities for individual and community development. Posse Scholars are expected to become leaders on campus and in the community.


Requirements of the Posse Program with the Posse Foundation

Posse staff members visit each university four times a year for meeting with Posse Scholars, campus liaisons and mentors. Each mentor meets weekly with the Posse as a team and with each Scholar individually every two weeks during the first two years in college.

In addition, Posse facilitates an annual weekend-long PossePlus Retreat attended by members of the larger student body, faculty and administration, with the goal of discussing an important campus issue identified by Posse Scholars.

Requirements of the Posse Program for On- campus Mentors

Posse members will meet with assigned campus mentors as a team once a week, and individually with their mentor every two weeks throughout the first two years at TAMU. Goals of the meetings can include topics such as resources and opportunities on campus, how to approach problems or issues, team building, campus leadership, college transition, and career development.
