Vanguard Workshops 2017

Contributing To A Brighter Future


Vanguard Workshops are offered to high school students in Southeast Asia who exhibit intellectual curiosity, global consciousness, and entrepreneurial spirit — the same qualities that distinguish Minerva students from other accomplished scholars. 

  • Ho Chi Minh: July 29-30
  • Hanoi: August 5-6
  • Singapore: August 12-13
  • Kuala Lumpur: August 19-20

Each workshop will offer a glimpse into what Minerva students experience during their four years: exposure to different global challenges and an opportunity to collaborate with civic organizations in search of solutions. 

Nominate a student below.
