Graduate students, the UW-Madison Posse Program has four position vacancies (50% Project Assistant-PA positions) for currently enrolled graduate students in a masters/doctoral, law, or medical programs at UW-Madison, or students admitted to one of these programs for this upcoming academic year (2023-24). Note these positions are a 2-year commitment and Posse Mentors must be able to attend two brief summer trainings prior to beginning the PA appointment. Additionally, these four graduate assistantships are eligible for tuition remission, a monthly stipend, and health insurance.
The Posse Program is seeking four Posse Mentors to join the UW Posse team and help support Posse Scholars personally, professionally, and academically! The Posse Program, established at UW-Madison in 2002, has approximately 160 active undergraduate scholars each year from four major U.S. cities – Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and New York. A “posse” is a group of 10 students from each city who are attending UW-Madison on a merit and leadership scholarship selected in partnership with the National Posse Foundation. The Posse Program is looking for dynamic graduate students who have a passion for mentorship and thrive in a community working to support undergraduate scholars.
