The Ivy Plus group of schools is made up of top universities in the United States that work together to recruit future master's, PhD, or other graduate studets, with the goal of fostering diversity in higher education.

For more than 20 years, the Ivy Plus group has visited Puerto Rico annually to discuss different graduate programs available (MA, MS, PhD, MD/PhD and other double degree programs) with young people interested in applying. Participants receive information on application processes, admission requirements, financial aid, as well as opportunities for summer research and transition programs to graduate studies. In these meetings we are joined by students from Ivy Plus universities—many of them graduates from Puerto Rican universities—to offer participants a first-hand perspective on the life of a graduate student.
