Maya Turun, a senior at South Pasadena High School, has been selected as a 2022 Posse Foundation Scholar. She plans to attend Northwestern University in the fall.
The Posse Foundation annually awards four-year, full-tuition, merit-based scholarships to attend one of Posse’s Los Angeles Partner Institutions. Applicants undergo a dynamic assessment process that reviews their leadership experience, intellectual energy and commitment to pursuing higher education.
Turun will be part of a “posse” from the Los Angeles area at Northwestern and will participate in foundation-sponsored workshops, meetings and peer collaboration groups beginning her senior year and continuing through her college graduation.
