Thirteen Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) students have been named recipients of full-tuition, four-year college scholarships from the Posse Foundation. The Posse program identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential that may have been overlooked by traditional college selection processes.
Nationally, more than 60 colleges and universities each offer full-tuition, merit scholarships to students throughout the country and create multicultural teams—called Posses—on each campus. These student teams receive professional guidance before and throughout college and provide support to one another.
On campus, these students serve in important leadership roles. The MCPS students will be honored at a ceremony at the Lincoln Theatre tonight (Jan. 4). This year’s recipients come from 10 high schools and will attend six different colleges. The Posse Scholar students from MCPS and the colleges they will be attending are:
