We are committed to treating every applicant equally, so all admissions decisions are based solely on merit. In addition, all admitted students are eligible to receive need-based financial aid through low-interest loans, work study, and if needed, additional scholarships.
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.
