Minerva University, recognized for its commitment to developing global leaders, has launched a new scholarship fund to increase access and affordability for Korean students. The fund was created in partnership with the World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) and will allow the university to increase its positive impact in Korea.
The first of its kind for the university, the fund will provide financial support to outstanding South Korean scholars who aspire to address humanity’s greatest challenges. Minerva University students benefit from an innovative educational experience emphasizing global immersion, project-based learning, and intercultural understanding. The university has an impressive track record of producing successful entrepreneurs. Because the fund allows philanthropists to have a greater impact in supporting local students, Minerva University intends to establish similar scholarship funds in other countries around the world.
"This partnership exemplifies our commitment to fostering inclusivity and excellence in education,” said Minerva University President Mike Magee. “We look forward to creating additional opportunities for South Korean students to excel in their academic journeys and prepare for careers that effect positive change on a global scale."
"We believe that education is a powerful tool for building a more peaceful and sustainable world, and this partnership aligns with that vision," said WFUNA Acting Secretary-General Aziel Goulandris. “I have no doubt our unwearying cooperation will promote momentum for global citizenship and mutual understanding for a connected, motivated, and promising future generation.”
