Vanguard Workshops 2017

Contributing To A Brighter Future


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

  • Beijing: November 18
  • Shanghai: November 25

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.

The Workshops
