"Founded in 1989, The Posse Foundation finds youth that are 'overlooked by traditional college selection processes,' and gives them the funds for a four-year degree," reports the Epoch Times. The New York City-based Chinese language newspaper adds, "It also groups students into multicultural, supportive teams -- or 'posses.' On Thursday 140 posse scholars received their awards. They were selected from more than 3,000 students in over 300 New York City schools and 100 organizations." (at right: DePauw Posse 15 from New York)

Participating schools include Babson College, Brandeis University, Colby College, DePauw University, Dickinson College, ectower duskFranklin & Marshall College, Lafayette College, Lawrence University, Middlebury College, Trinity College, University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Southern California, Vanderbilt University, and Wheaton College."
