Combining innovative curriculum with immersive global experience, Minerva is the only university built for the 21st century.

In support of a shared commitment to cultivating informed global citizens, we are offering a $10,000 scholarship for Model UN participant, admitted to Minerva, and exhibits financial need.*

We are now accepting applications for Fall 2017 enrollment. 

Complete the admissions process by the March 15, Regular Decision II deadline.

Accessible Admissions
100 % merit-based admission:

No application fee

No SATs or other standardized tests

The experience is challenging, but applying to Minerva is simple. Begin the online application and share your basic information. You will then gain access to the Admission Center, and a unique admissions process that allows you to showcase your skills and achievements in ways not possible in other university applications.

Minerva's tuition is less than a quarter of that at other top institutions. We also provide need-based financial aid through scholarships, work study and loans. All qualified students are eligible, regardless of where you come from.

As a MUN student, you are also eligible for a $10,000 need-based scholarship. If accepted, you will automatically be considered for this special scholarship.*

Apply now, and begin a new journey.

*If the scholarship is still available, RD II applicants will be considered. All applicants who submit the appropriate forms will still be considered for standard Financial Aid at Minerva.
