2020 POSSE scholarship
πŸ’°POSSE is such a great opportunity; it's at least worth a quick read, so you know what's up.
 
 
What is POSSE?
They are a national organization that connects colleges with students, and they arrange free four-year tuition to the eligible, interested applicants who are officially selected. 
What colleges collaborate with  POSSE? Well, it depends where you are in the US. The colleges that offer  POSSE for Bay Area students are Boston University, University of Puget Sound, and Lehigh University.  
 
What does  POSSE require for their application process? The POSSE selection process involves 3 in-person meetings (usually in San Francisco). These sessions happen in groups because  POSSE values teamwork above pretty much anything else. They want to see how students work together with others. 
Who should complete the WHS POSSE form? OK. This is a fantastic opportunity. But it's only a good match for some 2020 seniors.  It's great for students who would seriously consider one of the 3 participating colleges. It's for seniors who thrive when they work with others. And, it's for students who will commit to the in-person meetings starting in first semester. Is this you? Please complete this survey by Friday, August 30 if you are interested.
