The Joyce Ivy Foundation was established to assist young women in their pursuit of higher education opportunities. As a non-profit organization, the Joyce Ivy Foundation is dedicated to the academic advancement of young women in the Midwest. The Summer Scholars program provides scholarships for talented female high school students to attend summer academic programs at partner colleges and universities. Summer Scholars receive full and partial scholarship grants to apply to summer program tuition, room and board, and travel expenses. (via Joyceivyfoundation.org)
The Joyce Ivy Foundation sponsors many girls each year but one scholarship is always funded completely by money raised by former scholars. This is the Alumnae Scholarship, and this pay-it-forward campaign for it is near and dear to my heart as I was honored to receive this scholarship last summer. Please consider donating(even the smallest bit helps!) or share with your friends! And if you are a young woman interested in applying, I highly encourage it and would love to answer any questions you may have.
Summer Scholars alumnae pay it forward in many different ways, including participating in an annual fundraiser that supports a scholarship for a current Summer Scholar.
