About the Ivy League Project of Southern AZ

The Ivy League Project of Southern Arizona is a nine month program consisting of monthly college readiness meetings which culminate in an East Coast trip to Ivy League and other Top Tier Universities and Colleges in the Spring. Meetings consist of scholarship searches, introduction to the college application process, guest speakers and more. Schools include Harvard University, Brown University, Yale University, Drexel University and many more.

We are sponsored by the Southwest Leadership Initiative, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Tucson, Arizona.
