Minerva evaluates all applicants equally.
The majority of top American universities only offer need-based financial aid to U.S. students, disregarding exceptional students from other countries.

At Minerva, if you demonstrate need, you will receive financial aid —no matter where you are from.
If you are ready to change your life and improve your future, you must demonstrate your readiness to attend. If you qualify, you will be invited to join us.
