The foundation recruits talented, low-income students from inner-city high schools who may be overlooked by traditional college-admissions processes and sends cohorts of these students on full scholarships to 40 selective colleges nationwide. The foundation is using this three-year grant to launch a Posse chapter in Houston, its ninth urban site.
