COVID-19 Update: The Joyce Ivy Foundation continues to closely monitor the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and prioritize the health and safety of our students. We remain committed to naming, supporting and celebrating a cohort of 2020 Joyce Ivy Summer Scholars and plan to release Summer Scholar decisions by April 1. We are in close communication with our higher education partners regarding all summer programs. If for the safety and well-being of students our partners decide to cancel their summer programs, we will explore other options for Scholars to engage with our partner institutions, either virtually or in person at a later date. Please visit our JCAS page and Gala page to view individual updates regarding our in-person spring programming.
