Philadelphia, PA


The first Ivy Plus STEM Symposium and Workshops for Diverse Scholars took place on October 4-6, 2012 on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. Click here to see the article that appeared in the online Penn News. The feedback we have received from students, program directors and other participants has been that the symposium was a meaningful and worthwhile experience. Application fee waivers are available to STEM Symposium participants from many of the co-sponsoring schools for the 2012-13 cycle.
