From Education Week:

The Power of Peer Groups and Posses in College Success
The transition from high school to college can be daunting, academically, socially, and emotionally - and often especially so for students from minority groups who aren't well represented on many college campuses.
The Posse Foundation is a nonprofit organization based in New York that gives scholarships to diverse groups of students with strong leadership skills and sends them to selective colleges in "possess" of 10. The idea is that the scholars can bond before they ever go to campus and then can provide support to one another throughout their college years. The approach seems to work: While typical college graduation rates hover around 57 percent, about 90 percent of Posse scholars finish in four years.
Join Education Week for this webinar featuring the founder of Posse and a professor who came up with the idea of a STEM posse for students pursuing careers in science-related careers.
Underwriting for the content of this webinar has been provided by The Atlantic Philanthropies, NoVo Foundation, The Raikes Foundation, and The California Endowment.
Deborah Bial, founder and president, The Posse Foundation.
Irving Epstein, Henry F. Fischbach professor of chemistry and senior research advisor to the provost, Brandeis University
