Each year, students from New York City and Atlanta are selected as Brandeis Posse Scholars. These students receive four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships, making Posse one of the most competitive scholarship competitions in the country.

About Posse

Brandeis Posse is a merit-based scholarship program founded by Brandeis alumna and member of the Brandeis Board of Trustees, Deborah Bial ’87. Brandeis Posse Scholars are selected for their academic, leadership, and communication skills. They are expected to be not only strong students but also demonstrate outstanding interpersonal and problem-solving skills. The Brandeis Posse Program consists of two programs: one for liberal arts scholars and one for science scholars, with 10 students in each program.
