Eligible applicants for the Joyce Ivy Summer Scholars Scholarship are female identifying high school students living in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Nebraska, Missouri, Minnesota, North Dakota or South Dakota, who also attend high school in one of these seven states. Applicants are academically high-achieving students who will be entering 11th or 12th grade in the upcoming fall. Past Summer Scholars, who used their scholarships, are not eligible to apply again for another scholarship.
The Summer Scholars program provides scholarships for talented female high school students to participate in a summer academic program at one of our partner programs – some of the most rigorous and selective colleges and universities in the country. Scholars receive a full or partial scholarship, based on demonstrated financial need, to cover tuition, room and board, travel expenses, and supplies. The Joyce Ivy Foundation works directly with our set of program partners to combine Joyce Ivy scholarships with additional financial aid provided by the summer program.
