Joyce Ivy Foundation- Scholarships for Pre-College Summer Programs
Deadline March 19 - For Junior & Senior Girls
The Joyce Ivy Foundation provides scholarships to help young women from Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio and Michigan in their pursuit of higher education opportunities at leading academic institutions. Applications for Summer 2012 can be submitted NOW online athttp://www.joyceivyfoundation.org
If you know a high-achieving female sophomore or junior who would benefit from a scholarship to attend a summer academic program at an Ivy League or other excellent college, please encourage her to visit http://www.joyceivyfoundation.org
for more information. This is the Foundation's first year providing scholarships to young women from Missouri, and we hope to have applicants from your school.
In 2011, 56 Joyce Ivy Foundation Summer Scholars received scholarships for summer programs at some of the best universities in the nation - Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Penn, Stanford and Yale. For summer 2012, the Joyce Ivy Foundation plans to increase the number of full and partial scholarships to be awarded for Pre-College Summer Programs. These scholarships cover the cost of tuition, room and board, as well as related expenses such as books, fees, and travel to and from campus.
While our deadline is March 19, 2012, please encourage your students to apply early, as pre-college financial aid budgets tend to be consumed relatively early in the admissions cycle. We hope that you will visit http://www.joyceivyfoundation.org for more information and to watch our video featuring recent Joyce Ivy Summer Scholars, and encourage students who would benefit from our scholarship program to do the same.
