Opening up the world of possibilities for young women in engineering, math and science is the heart of the Frank Minolli Foundation, a Michigan non-profit organization dedicated to the academic advancement of high potential female high school students in the Midwest.

In partnership with the Joyce Ivy Foundation, the Frank Minolli Foundation seeks to broaden the college aspirations of high-potential young women in the Midwest, and does so primarily through the  Summer Scholars program that provides scholarships to high school students for summer academic study at the nation’s most rigorous and selective institutions of higher education: Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Brown, Cornell, Emory, New York University, University of Pennsylvania, and Smith. These institutions support some of the world’s strongest science and engineering departments.
