Event Details

The Power of 10 is Posse’s signature fundraising event that recognizes the strength of a Posse of 10 dynamic students and celebrates diversity in higher education and the workforce.

This festive reception features hors d’oeuvres, drinks and entertainment, and includes a brief program honoring special guests and Posse alumni.

THE POSSE FOUNDATION identifies, recruits and trains urban public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential and sends them in Posses—supportive, multicultural teams of 10 students—to top colleges and universities across the country. Posse’s 55 college and university partners award Posse Scholars four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships. To date, 6,993 Posse Scholars have won $932 million in scholarships. Most important, Posse Scholars persist and graduate at a rate of 90 percent and are active leaders on their campuses and in the workforce.

Posse is a national initiative with sites in Atlanta, the Bay Area, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York and Washington, D.C.

Since 2012, POSSE HOUSTON has selected 212 Scholars who have earned $27.9 million in merit-based leadership scholarships from its six partner colleges and universities: Bryn Mawr College, Carleton College, Colby College, Texas A&M University, The University of Texas at Austin, University of Virginia and Wellesley College.
