The nonprofit Minerva Institute for Research and Scholarship, led by Chairman Bob Kerrey, is committed to making a Minerva education accessible to all qualified students, facilitating the administration of grant-funded research, and advocating for broad reform in higher education.
Supporting our students financially, providing a more effective administration mechanism for research grants, and recognizing thought leadership in higher education, the Minerva Institute works on solutions that will improve higher education on a global scale.
Our students are all extremely bright, driven, and curious — innate qualities that are geographically distributed and found at every socioeconomic level. We believe these qualities, in addition to their outstanding academic achievement, deserve to be nurtured. In this video you will learn about three Minerva students and their hopes for realizing a more enlightened, prosperous, sustainable, and peaceful world.
