Higher Education for the 21st Century

An Education Built For You

 

Minerva is an intensive four-year undergraduate education designed to prepare you for success in today’s rapidly changing global context. With rigorous academics, small seminars conducted on our proprietary platform, and four years of immersive global study, Minerva is the first university experience built for the 21st century.

In support of UWC Kosova National Committee and Minerva's shared commitment to cultivate future leaders, we are offering a $10,000 scholarship to a student from Kosova, admitted to Minerva, who exhibits financial need.* 

Extended Decision is offered by invitation only. If your application looks promising, we will invite you to continue the admissions process.

STUDENT STORIES

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.
