At ivyO, we believe that education is the greatest social equalizer, and one of the most powerful ways to change people’s lives for the better. As such, we are committed to our endeavor of leveling the playing field for students from financially modest backgrounds who aspire to study at top universities in the US or UK. We understand the challenges faced by these students, and to help them turn their dreams into reality, we offer the ivyO Scholarship.
What is the ivyO Scholarship?
The ivyO Scholarship is a need-based program designed to benefit students from around the world. At absolutely no cost to the students or their families, the ivyO Scholarship provides personalized strategies, guidance and support to help students gain admission to their best-fit US or UK institution of higher learning.
Each ivyO Scholarship includes a program designed to assist outstanding students who have a proven track record of academic excellence, notable extracurricular achievements, and significant contributions to their high school and wider communities.
Recipients of the ivyO Scholarship will work with dedicated ivyO admissions consultants who are members of the National Association for College Admission Counseling and International Association for College Admission Counseling.

For ivyO Scholarship winners who wish to pursue a tertiary education in the UK, their dedicated ivyO admissions consultant will adjust the ivyO Scholarship program accordingly, given the increased focus on academics in the UK admissions process.

We extend exactly the same undertaking to our ivyO Scholarships winners and their families, whose names, images, or personal details will not be used in any of our marketing materials or on our website.
Nonetheless, the specific ivyO consulting services provided to each Scholarship winner may vary based on individual circumstances, and the selection of services is at the sole discretion of ivyO.

Students and their parents should note that applications to the ivyO Scholarship and the level of services to be awarded are determined at the sole discretion of ivyO and that ivyO’s decision is final. Further note that the Scholarship award is not transferrable and the value of ivyO services granted cannot be converted into cash or any other form of monetary compensation.
