Since 2009, OM Asset Manangement has supported Posse financially, though direct employee engagement, and by hiring Posse Scholars as interns every summer in various areas of the OM Asset Management business. Founded in 1989, Posse identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by traditional college selection processes. Posse extends to these students the opportunity to pursue personal and academic excellence by placing them in supportive, multicultural teams-Posses-of 10 students. Posse partner colleges and universities award Posse Scholars four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships. Posse's national programme has awarded $1.1 billion in leadership scholarships to these young people and have seen their success not only as leaders on campus, but in these students' 90 percent persistence and graduation rate. Posse's partners are investing time, energy and resources in the promotion of equity in education and social justice. They believe in the intelligence, talent and dreams of young people who might not always show up on their radar screens, and are giving them a chance to excel. Posse is helping to create a new kind of network of leaders who will sit at the tables where decisions are made and better represent the voices of all Americans. With support from the programme, Posse Scholars are excelling academically, founding and leading campus organisations, taking on competitive internships and earning prestigious awards. Our equally successful alumni secure competitive jobs and admission to top graduate programmes.
