Do you know a talented Midwestern high school-aged young woman who wants a fellowship to a summer program at a top university?
Forgive me for a non-land use post...
For the last seven years, I have been a volunteer and board member for the Joyce Ivy Foundation (JIF), which we believe is now the largest provider of summer academic scholarships in the country (we awarded 80 scholarships last year, and are looking to provide more this year). The program provides needs-based scholarships to talented Midwestern high school-aged young women to attend summer programs at the countries best colleges. I became involved with the foundation due to my Midwestern roots and my life-long efforts to improve educational opportunities in that part of the country. Seeing the transformation this program has afforded scholarship recipients over the past seven years has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional life. Deadlines for the JIF scholarship are March 15 and available here. Official eligibility requirements here.
In addition, on May 10-11, we are in our second year of hosting a free symposium near Ann Arbor, MIchigan that will seek to take some of the mystery out of applying to top schools. If you know a high school student in the area that would benefit from this symposium, have him or her stop by!
